Mission Statement

Nashville International Center for Empowerment’s mission is to ensure refugees and immigrants achieve their full potential now and for generations to come. Our goal is to empower refugees and immigrants with resources and opportunities that will aid them in their resettlement and equip them to be successful in the future. We do this by: Advocating for refugees and immigrants Building strong community of relationships Creating sustainable service programs Developing partnerships in Middle Tennessee

Description

In 2005, the Nashville International Center for Empowerment (NICE) was founded by a group of Sudanese refugee men and women, including our President/CEO Dr. Gatluak Ter Thach, who desired to help other refugees and immigrants living in Middle Tennessee. Many of the center’s founders came to the United States in the 1990s from war-torn Sudan, with the goal of finding a safe place to live, work, and raise their families. However, most Sudanese refugees had little educational experience due to the war, making their resettlement extremely difficult. The experiences of these founders prompted the creation of NICE, so they could help others with skills that would help them gain their independence and self‚Äźsufficiency in their new home.
