Hillcrest JFON Coordinator, Sue Conder
Tennessee Justice for Our Neighbors (TN JFON) is a part of a national network of immigration legal clinics created by the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) in 1999. At present, there are about 20 JFON clinics throughout the country. On average, the JFON network serves over 2,500 clients each year.
Tennessee JFON has been conducting monthly immigration intake clinics since April, 2008 and was launched by Belmont and Hillcrest United Methodist Churches.
The primary objectives of TN JFON are to provide high-quality, free immigration legal services for low-income individuals and to engage the faith community in advocacy on behalf of our immigrant neighbors. TN JFON conducts client intake through a monthly free immigration legal services clinic on the third Saturday of each month between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Hillcrest United Methodist Church in Nashville, then represents clinic clients through the pendency of their immigration legal needs.
Volunteers make the JFON ministry possible through their care and dedication, offering support to JFON clients.
