INFO SESSION: How Your Community Can Help Afghan Families Coming to Nashville
September 21 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
The scenes we have witnessed from Afghanistan have been harrowing, and our hearts are with all those whose lives have been affected by this humanitarian crisis.
Now, tens of thousands of our allies from Afghanistan are in the process of being resettled to cities around the United States, including Nashville. In the coming weeks and months, Nashville is preparing to welcome nearly 300 Afghans – with NICE resettling about half through our agency.
This is certainly a unique moment in the history of our nation, this city, and our agency, but our hearts are filled from the outpouring of support we have received from people who want to help provide hope to our new neighbors in Nashville.
During this critical time, we are leaning on the Nashville community to help provide basic needs for incoming Afghan families: affordable housing, transportation, jobs, food, and healthcare – the tools they need to become self-sufficient, and successfully transition into life in the United States.
Register for the info session to learn how your faith community or group can wrap their arms around families from Afghanistan, and provide healing and hope to our new neighbors.
