The Story

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Jun 30, 2016

Join the Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON) network in supporting immigrant families seeking access to life changing legal services.  Celebrate this Mother's Day and Father's Day by giving the gift of family-- whether it's the warm embrace of family members who no longer have to live apart or the relief an immigrant child feels knowing that her parents will not be taken away from her.  We are a national alliance of 13 independently operated sites that run legal clinics staffed by immigration attorneys and hundreds of volunteers.  Since 1999 we have welcomed immigrants through a ministry of hospitality that provides affordable, high-quality immigration legal services, engages in advocacy for immigrant rights, and offers education to communities of faith and the public.  In 2015 we collectively handled over 8,000 legal cases for nearly 4,000 low-income immigrant clients from 116 countries.  We handle a wide range of case types including refugee adjustments, asylum, assisting victims of crimes, work authorizations, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival cases for young dreamers, and advice and counsel.
