General Operations for Free Legal Representation
Through this fund, MJM can cover all legal fees for clients, including representation, DNA and drug testing, records, mediation, filing fees, and more. We strongly believe that vulnerable community members deserve quality representation no matter the severity or length of their case.
Safe Home Program
The Safe Home Program provides our clients with emergency financial aid for necessities like rent, utilities, car repairs, daycare, and more. Through this fund, we can help caregivers create or maintain a safe environment for children to thrive, rather than face homelessness or return to abusive situations due to financial hardship.
MJM covers therapy fees by independent licensed professionals that provide mental health services including play therapy, and individual and family counseling. These sessions empower our clients by helping them process trauma, learn coping skills, and set individual goals. Together, clients and their therapists assess progress until the client is ready and able to move forward independently.
North Texas Giving Day
Each year, MJM participates in North Texas Giving Day — an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits they care about in one easy-to-use platform.
Our goal is to raise $75,000.

Purchase a Book
Support Methodist Justice Ministry by purchasing Rev. Brooks Harrington’s latest book, Paloma. You can find it in hard copy or paperback at your favorite retailer or on audio at Kindle and Google Play and all proceeds benefit the mission of MJM.
Two people from very different backgrounds and circumstances struggle together to find God in a world of random injustice and human evil. Paloma has suffered bitter poverty and neglect as a child and exploitation and addiction as a teen and an adult. John Levi is a lawyer from a privileged, sheltered home who answers the call of God to pastor an inner-city church. Together, Paloma and John Levi hunger and thirst for justice and mercy for the neighbors of the church and for Paloma and her daughter. At first, Paloma is angered by any talk about the presence and power of a God whom she believes has failed to answer her prayers. John Levi is convinced that God is calling him to rescue Paloma from her plight but crosses a line in protecting her from evil men. Facing the consequences of his actions, John Levi struggles with the limitations imposed upon his hunger for justice by the Way of Jesus. Both Paloma and John Levi transcend the crisis to find a new faith.
No Mercy, No Justice
All proceeds from No Mercy, No Justice by Brooks Harrington benefit MJM.
In this book, Rev. Brooks Harrington draws on more than 42 years’ experience as a criminal prosecutor, a pastor of an inner-city church in an impoverished neighborhood, and the founder of a legal ministry protecting indigent victims of family violence and child neglect and abuse. Through moving stories of women and children he has encountered, he shows the terrible toll of the dominant narrative’s version of justice and mercy. And he offers Christians hope with new and startling insights into God’s justice and mercy revealed in the parables of Jesus.
