Meet Our Partners

For refugees to go from knowing no one and having no resources to becoming vital members of the community, a variety of stakeholders must be involved. The Tennessee Office for Refugees recognizes the importance of community involvement in refugee resettlement. We aim to support refugee resettlement by partnering with the community to provide information and resources while facilitating the growth of valuable networks.
