Justice for our Neighbors

Our Mission

Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska (JFON-NE) is a nonprofit organization welcoming immigrants into our communities by providing free, high-quality immigration legal services, education, and advocacy.

 

History

Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON) is a project of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and the United Methodist Church Conferences of Iowa and Nebraska.

 

The program initially was a response to the passage of harsh immigration laws in 1996. Later it also focused on the stricter laws passed in the aftermath of 9/11.

 

JFON provides free, professional legal services to immigrants in monthly legal clinics. This UMCOR program connects a national network of church-based, volunteer-led immigration legal clinics to asylum seekers and immigrants who need a helping hand to navigate the maze of rules and laws that affect their lives in the United States. The free legal clinic network extends the support and welcome of the church to marginalized immigrants living in the shadows among us.

 

JFON operates with the support of volunteers from various religious denominations.
