Mapbased guide helps immigrants and refugees findcosting health care, immigration support, ESL/citizenship classes, and other essential services.

DALLAS, September 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — JuntosDFW.org is a map-based guide designed to help immigrants and refugees living in DFW find essential and humanitarian services nearby. Locations and contact details are provided for clinics, emergency care, dentists and medical specialists who offer services at reduced rates or free in some cases. Locations of ESL and citizenship classes, immigration lawyers, and humanitarian organizations that help with the immigration process are also mapped.

JuntosDFW.org has only one mission: to help immigrants find essential services they might not even know existed. Too often, immigrants choose to skip or accept less than ideal health care and immigration legal service options because they are unaware of their options. JuntosDFW.org solves this challenge.

JuntosDFW.org does not log, nor does it save or track any user information. There are no fees for users or service providers. It generates no income. JuntosDFW.org does not accept donations, however, it directs users to volunteer or donate to local humanitarian organizations that support immigrants.

The website is organized into categories. Users select the category to see locations on a map:

  • Help: find out about immigration support organizations
  • Learn: locate citizenship or ESL courses
  • Legal: find immigration lawyers
  • Health: seek free or degressive health care

Plans for the site include continued expansion of listings and growth into other metropolitan areas.

JuntosDFW.org was founded and developed by David P. Gibson after working with humanitarian organizations that support immigrants and saw a critical need. David, a homeschooled high school student in the DFW area, conducted extensive community and web searches to gather information about essential immigrant-friendly services and providers. He is passionate about human rights, especially the challenges faced by immigrants. He acts as a volunteer guide and junior executive on the board of directors of the Dallas Holocaust and Human Rights Museum (DHHRM) and teaches English as a second language through Gateway of Grace. In addition to high school, David is a student at UNT where he focuses on history and political philosophy. You can reach David by email at [email protected] or follow him on twitter @JuntosDFW.
