In our 20th anniversary year, Just Neighbors is relocating its offices. We will still be located in an area rich with low-income immigrants, but we are moving into a collaborative relationship that will benefit our clients and their families.
When a church on Heritage Drive in Annandale began to close its doors, Annandale United Methodist Church welcomed the remaining members and acquired ownership of the church facility. Annandale UMC is using that campus as an outreach center for its immigrant neighborhood. The Heritage site offers a robust food distribution program, after school tutoring and English classes.
Annandale UMC and Just Neighbors are designing plans to convert the sanctuary into an office suite. In keeping with Just Neighbors’ focus on volunteers, please know that we plan to use volunteers for demolition work and, later, to install drywall and to paint. If you want to volunteer to help, or if you have other construction skills you’d like to contribute, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We expect the construction to take place in May and June.
