Refugees are the fabric of our communities.

The event will feature international cuisine, dancing, family friendly activities for all ages and stories from our clients, community navigators, and partners.

Bridge Refugee Services is an East Tennessee 501(c)3 nonprofit agency that helps resettle and support refugees and asylees in Knoxville. In our commitment to providing stability and sanctity for these refugees and their aspiring journeys, our vision is to secure for them a path towards self-sufficiency and fulfillment of their dreams. To do that, we must have the support from local communities. Our organization strives to make the resettlement process for these individuals and families less intimidating by referring them to English language development, case management, equal employment opportunities, and enrolling children in school.
