RB Morris, Malcolm Holcombe, Mary Gauthier, and Greg Brown are putting their individual talents together for a concert benefitting Bridge Refugee Services on December 12th.

Bridge Refugee Services is the only refugee resettlement agency in East Tennessee, and has been in operation since 1982. Our mission is to provide opportunities for refugees to rebuild their lives, after suffering persecution, so that they become productive, contributing members of the community. Through employment services, case management, school enrollment, and referral programs, we welcome and empower refugees to be self-sufficient. We strongly believe that the most vulnerable members of our community also have the most potential.

Refugees are enriching our communities indifferent sectors of development including education, hospitality, manufacturing, landscaping, arts, food industry and healthcare. Single-parent refugees require additional support once they no longer qualify for government funds, and they face an additional set of barriers to employment compared to refugee families with multiple employed adults. We hope that you will join us in continuing to welcome refugees to East Tennessee, and we are deeply grateful for the support of our community partners and friends.

This concert is about more than just having fun; it is also a soul to soul opportunity with the musicians and new Americans. Reserve your seat before the tickets are sold out.
