About Us

Justice For Our Neighbors-Nebraska (JFON-NE), a metro Omaha-based nonprofit, is a chapter ofNational Justice For Our Neighbors, a network of 14 state chapters offering more than 35 legal clinics for immigration services. All JFON projects across the country are staffed by local full-time, paid attorneys.

The foundation of our work is to provide immigration legal services in a wide, genuine, and compassionate sense—welcoming and helping immigrants who are often scared and confused by the systems and ways of the United States, and with no other sources of immigration legal assistance because of their low income.

Our attorneys provide free, professional legal services to low-income immigrants in weekly consultations and monthly legal clinics held at host partner locations. Our attorneys and staff also offer presentations on immigration issues to the community as well as opportunities to advocate for immigrant rights.

JFON-NE is a ministry of the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) and the Great Plains United Methodist Conference. Our legal clinic network extends support and a welcome hand to marginalized immigrants living in the shadows among us. JFON-NE operates with volunteer support from the public as well as various religious denominations. Funding is provided by the Great Plains United Methodist Conference and a variety of local and regional foundations.
