In 2013, Capital District United Women in Faith (then Austin District United Methodist Women) joined the Justice for Our Neighbors (JFON) initiative in the Austin-geographical area, as a district-wide love in action mission. The JFON program was developed by the General Board of Global Ministries in 1999 as part of a nationwide outreach project. There are currently four JFON offices in Texas. The offices provide to low income immigrants free, high-quality immigration legal services, education, and advocacy.
