About Us

JFON DFW couldn’t do all that it does without the generous support of caring individuals like you! To make a difference through JFON, please donate. Every gift makes a difference!

Justice For Our Neighbors Dallas-Fort Worth offers free and affordable, high-quality immigration legal services, provides education to the public, and engages in advocacy with and for our immigrant neighbors. JFON DFW services a region that is centered around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.

Legal services are provided by a licensed immigration attorney who remains with their case until relief is granted or all avenues are exhausted.  Intake Clinics are held once each month at First United Methodist Church in Grapevine FUMC, Arapaho United Methodist Church in Richardson, and Genesis United Methodist Church in Fort Worth. At these clinics, immigrant neighbors are welcomed and meet with the JFON DFW attorney to learn if they have a claim to the legal status they seek. Volunteers and staff are privileged to hear the real stories of real people and see the issue of immigration in a much clearer light.


JFON DFW is a regional ministry which receives support from a variety of sources, including grants from the Texas Bar Foundation, Dallas Bar Foundation, American Immigration Lawyers Association, National Justice For Our Neighbors, and other generous individuals and organizations. JFON DFW also receives significant support from the North and Central Texas Conferences of the United Methodist Church and from churches across both of these great conferences.
