HOPE THROUGH IMMIGRATION LEGAL SERVICES

LEGAL SERVICES

Our compassionate and talented attorneys and volunteers make it possible for immigrants and refugees to achieve their American dream through immigration legal services.

CONNECTIONS

We foster enriching experiences and opportunities that enhance awareness and mutual understanding among our clients, volunteers, staff, and community.

EDUCATION

We provide education on immigration law and legal rights, making it possible for the community to have nonpartisan and accessible information on the American immigration system.

our mission

The mission of Just Neighbors is to provide high-quality immigration legal services to low-income immigrants, asylees and refugees in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia; and, to build community among clients, staff, volunteers and the larger society through education, advocacy, and volunteerism.

Escape domestic violence

Congress has created special visas for victims of domestic violence and violent crimes. Our attorneys can help eligible immigrants apply for these visas, helping them become independent of their abusers and start new lives.

Obtain U.S. Work Approval

Our attorneys and volunteers help immigrants who are eligible for protections like Temporary Protective Status (TPS) and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) obtain their work permits.

Unify Families

Immigrants often have to leave loved ones behind in their country of origin, or are at risk of being separated from their loved ones in the U.S. Just Neighbors helps clients navigate the immigration legal system to keep families united.

Volunteer with Just Neighbors!

Volunteers are essential to our ability to achieve our mission of providing immigration legal services to the low-income community, while also forging new bonds between immigrants and the larger Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia community in which they live. Just Neighbors entrusts volunteers with vital duties that include communicating with clients and potential clients, translation services and document preparation for clients, community outreach, and much more.
