The Juan Neumann Center was founded on January 20, 2003. Founder and Director Father Ruskin Piedra realized the great need for quality low and no-cost immigration legal services in Sunset Park and its surrounding communities and created the Center in order to meet those needs. The Center is named after Saint John Neumann, the fourth Bishop of Philadelphia and the first and only male American Bishop to be canonized. Saint Neumann was passionate about his charity work with recent immigrants to the United States. Following in his footsteps, the Center seeks to provide the highest quality legal assistance to the Sunset Park immigrant community at the lowest possible cost. Since its inception, the Center has helped over 3,000 individuals with their immigration matters.
The Center is fully accredited by the Department of Justice, Board of Immigration Appeals.
We are part of the Pastoral organization of OLPH.
