Bringing Hope to Refugees and Immigrants

Working Mission exists to grow and develop a sustainable foundation for the refugee and international communities, equipping them through intentional relationships, agricultural programs, language and job development.

Uniting Refugee Families with True Community

Working Mission is a non-profit based in Nashville, Tennessee. We work with immigrants and refugees, and our mission is three-fold:

Donate Once

Give Monthly


We seek to unite refugee and international families

with other local individuals and families by creating opportunities to connect through intentional relationships and mentorship that will assist with their resettlement and assimilation.


We seek to utilize agricultural programs

such as community gardens, farmer’s market, and animal husbandry to aid in basic needs fulfillment and supplemental income opportunities for refugees throughout their resettlement process and for the international community as needed.


We seek to utilize training and development

practices to aid international communities by providing resources and classes for conversational English, ESL, and citizenship prep along with education and job development to assist in long-term advancement.

Why Working Mission?

Working: the action of doing work
Mission: a task that is assigned or begun, a task that is regarded as a very important duty

We believe caring for the overlooked and underserved population of refugee and international communities in middle Tennessee is a mission of high importance, but also a mission that is going to require diligent work if we want to provide dignity, hope and help.

Working Mission was birthed from the idea of a mustard seed. Something that begins its life cycle as an incredibly small somewhat unnoticed seed that ultimately grows into a large plant and some would even say tree. Understanding that we, on our own, are a small, focused team of people, we pray that something large will grow from this work to impact and sustain the increasing population of underserved people in our communities and beyond.
