Just Neighbors Immigration Legal Services
About the organization
The mission of Just Neighbors is to provide immigration legal services to low-income immigrants and refugees of all faiths and nationalities, especially those who are most vulnerable. We also seek to foster enriching experiences that enhance community and mutual understanding among our clients, volunteers, and staff.
Just Neighbors depends heavily on volunteers to do casework and perform the daily operations of the office. Short-term volunteers must commit to working at least two full or three half-days per week during our intake hours (Tuesday–Friday, 9am–5pm), and speaking Spanish is highly recommended, though not required. Volunteers answer phones and complete client phone intakes in English and Spanish, work with clients and staff in preparing documents for immigration applications, perform basic office administrative duties, assist with social media and outreach, and, when applicable, help with oral and written translations.
Basic office skills and experience working with people from diverse backgrounds and with varying levels of English. An interest in helping your immigrant neighbors.
