Welcoming Refugees and Immigrants to Middle Tennessee

Your donation provides critical support to refugee families

Around the world, over 110 million people are displaced from their homes due to war, unrest, or natural disaster. When refugees and immigrants come to Nashville, they are faced with a new language and culture, away from all they’ve ever known.


At NICE, we help our new neighbors start the next chapter of their lives in peace.

Our Programs

NICE welcomes refugees through the U.S. State Department's Refugee Admissions Program, and provides multiple programs for refugees and immigrants to thrive in their new community. Since 2005, NICE has served over 40,000 people in Middle Tennessee.


Welcoming our new neighbors takes a community, including you! We want to help match you with an opportunity that reflects your passions and experience.
