“As United Methodist, we believe that to welcome the stranger is to welcome a child of God. We are called to love the sojourner in our midst. Therefore, we believe the treatment of immigrants in our society is a core religious value. The opening of the Justice for our Neighbors clinic is a sign of our love for the sojourner in our midst that Jesus taught and demonstrated to his disciples.”
-Bishop Janice Riggle Huie
Justice for our Neighbors Houston/East Texas works in partnership with the Houston Immigration Legal Services Collaborative.
