Just Neighbors is excited to announce that Tori Andrea Babington, currently Director of Legal Services at Northern Virginia Family Service, will be joining our team after her mid-October departure from NVFS. Tori has worked relentlessly for 10 years building a stellar legal program at NVFS and will continue to build on that work at Just Neighbors as Managing Attorney of Rural Programs.
In 2019, Just Neighbors expanded to serve immigrants and refugees outside of the Northern Virginia area; specifically, the target areas of Virginia’s Eastern Shore, Staunton, Harrisonburg and Lynchburg. Tori will be tasked with spearheading the development of our Rural Programs by engaging with stakeholders in those areas, providing direct representation to clients residing outside of the NoVa region, and cultivating pro bono counsel to onboard cases after consultations. Tori is well equipped to meet the challenges of growing our Rural Programs after building and expanding programmatic delivery at NVFS.
Tori will be working out of our main office in Annandale as well as an office in Warrenton. We are so excited to welcome Tori to our team and can’t wait to see the good work she will continue to do on behalf of Virginia’s immigrant community.
