Justice For Our Neighbors

Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON) provides low-cost, high-quality professional legal assistance to immigrants.  Arapaho UMC is an approved JFON site and we serve a multitude of immigrants from Richardson and surrounding areas.
During monthly clinics held at the church, a professional immigration attorney with JFON DFW will meet with prospective clients to help them begin their journey toward legal status.
Clinics will be held at Arapaho UMC on the second Thursday of every month from 6–10pm.
