Just Neighbors offers hope and help for immigrants to the US, providing high-quality legal services to neighbors throughout the region. In 2020 alone, 460 persons escaped violence in their home countries and were able to work in the US. Work authorization and family unification were achieved for hundreds of clients. Some were "advice and counsel" cases in which nearly all were also eligible for immigration benefits; others were given legal advice about their rights in the US and warnings about paying unscrupulous providers. Experienced staff attorneys supervise all cases, prepare clients for interviews, and accompany them to meetings with immigration officials, ensuring that no one feels confused or alone. The goal is to help an increasing number of immigrants build their own capacity and resources – and achieve the goals they have set for themselves and their families.
