Social Adjustment Services

Newly arrived refugee families often face difficulties accessing and applying for social services that may be needed as they establish a foundation after resettlement.

Our dedicated staff and volunteers are available to support and assist refugees with a multitude of social adjustment services. We offer free assistance to refugees and specialize in the following social adjustment activities:

Applying for affordable housing assistance
Accessing affordable healthcare
Applying for disability and Supplemental Security Income
Applying for unemployment benefits
Applying for Families First and TennCare
Referrals to other agencies

Our social adjustment services are funded by the Office of Refugee Resettlement.
