The Episcopal Church has long supported a robust refugee resettlement program for those fleeing their countries to escape persecution, oppression, and war. Through Episcopal Migration Ministries, our Church has worked in public-private partnership with the U.S. Government to resettle thousands of refugees since the inception of the program in 1980. The Episcopal Church is committed to continuing this tradition of welcoming refugees to peaceful homes and hopeful futures in the United States. We invite you to join with us to speak out for refugee protection and resettlement.
Bridge Refugees Services is a nonprofit agency operating in Knoxville and Chattanooga that is committed to providing protection and assistance in refugees’ inspiring journey. We recognize their plight, their resilience and their willingness to join our community and make it their own. Become part of America’s proud tradition of welcoming refugees and come join us as we work together, building lives in a new land.
