Refugees’ Resettlement Experience in Nashville

The Nashville International Center for Empowerment (NICE), a part of ECDC’s refugee resettlement network, was recently featured in Nashville Scene. In addition to talking about refugee resettlement in Nashville, it shows NICE’s services to refugees and the refugee path towards self-sufficiency.  The stories of six refugees and their families are featured. These refugees talk about their resettlement experience in the United States and how a new start has given them hope and determination to move forward in life and make contributions to their new community.
