Why Participate?

For more than 20 years, Just Neighbors has served more than 12,000 clients from 130 countries by helping low-income immigrants obtain the documentation to which they are legally entitled. We believe that investing in immigration legal services positively impacts a family’s overall stability in the United States. Requiring individuals to pay expensive fees for these services forces families to choose between paying for legal services or for basic needs like food and housing. Research shows that granting legal status and citizenship to immigrants increases their income level, chances of home ownership, education level and access to health care.

Focusing on humanitarian cases, Just Neighbors staff attorneys and many volunteers serve the most vulnerable immigrants in our community, many who are:

  • Refugees and asylees
  • Immigrant victims of domestic violence and other violent crimes
  • Dreamers (youth who arrived in the United States as children)
  • Those issued Temporary Protected Status (TPS) because of armed conflict or natural disasters in their homelands.
  • Families seeking general advice about their immigration status

Your participation in this 5K will directly serve our immigrant and refugee neighbors in need of these crucial immigration legal services.
