Supporting Our Afghan Neighbors
Tennessee will be welcoming Afghans escaping the current crisis in Afghanistan. In Nashville, over 500 Afghans are expected to arrive over the next weeks and months.  We want to welcome them with open arms, giving them the support they need to adjust to their new life in America.  Find out ways you can welcome our new Afghan Neighbors through volunteering or donating items or funds.
