Tennessee Office for Refugees

About Us

Our mission is to foster growth, integration and self-sufficiency by providing financial, technical and professional support to refugees and the agencies who serve them in the State of Tennessee.

Since TOR has taken over administration for the state government, TOR has helped thousands of displaced persons find new homes in Tennessee. As these new arrivals begin to rebuild their lives here in our state, they all have the same goal in mind, making a home for themselves. The circumstances of leaving their home country may differ from person to person, but all need a new place to start again. TOR helps coordinate with resettlement agencies throughout the state to begin the resettlement process for those who are classified as Refugees, Asylees, Special Immigrant Visa (SIV) holders, Trafficking Victims, Amerasians and Cuban/Haitian Entrants.

More than 1,600 refugees were resettled in Tennessee during the 2014 federal fiscal year.

The services of our Basic Needs Programs work to meet the needs of people we serve in a supportive way.
