Justice For Our Neighbors (JFON)
Justice For Our Neighbors is a national program that offers affordable legal assistance to immigrants in the United States. Arapaho UMC in Richardson, Texas, was recently approved as a JFON mobile site.
Professional immigration attorney Ms. Graham Bateman will meet with immigrants during monthly clinics at the church to assist them on the path toward legal status. These clinics will be located at Arapaho UMC and will occur on the second Thursday of each month, from 6:00 p.m. – 10:00 p.m.
Appointments are by reservation only, so please call Arapaho UMC at 972-231-1005 if you would like an appointment. When you call, you will be asked to leave a voicemail; we ask that you please leave your name, phone number, and a summary of your request for an appointment. The waiting list can be long, but we are eager to help you!
