The mission of Just Neighbors is to provide immigration legal services to low-income immigrants and refugees in Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia, especially those who are most vulnerable. We also seek to foster enriching experiences that enhance awareness and mutual understanding among our clients, volunteers, staff, and community.
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.
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.
How can you help?
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.
