Our Mission

NSUJL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting families of fallen or injured IBEW Journeymen Linemen, Utility Linemen, Apprentice Linemen, Groundmen, Operators, LCTT and/or their spouses and minor children. Tax ID #: 45-4670118

At NSUJL, we believe that no brother/sister or their family is to be left behind. With this NSUJL provides an array of services:

We believe in restoring some stability in the lives of our families while they cope with the harsh realities of a work related accident. The financial support that NSUJL provides covers basic necessities such as, but not limited to: housing payment, electric, water, heat, food, trash, vehicle, and insurance.  NSUJL will also assist with transportation and/or hotel rooms for out-of-area medical appointments and hospital stays. An average monthly benefit to a family ranges from $3,000-$5,000. The support we have received through donations and sponsorships has made it possible for NSUJL to provide this level of assistance. As more individuals and organizations have become aware of our programs, the requests for assistance has also increased. It is only through continued generosity of our donors and sponsors that NSUJL will be able to meet the growing need.

Our fantastic members across the United States volunteer their time to assist the family directly. This assistance can include, but is not limited to: late night phone calls, delivering home cooked meals, helping with household chores, babysitting, driving an injured lineworker to doctor’s appointments, etc.

NSUJL has an on-staff clinical licensed Therapist who donates sessions to the families for counseling, grieving and additional services as needed.

In addition to setting up counseling and other programs for grieving/rehabilitation, NSUJL’s Sister-to-Sister group is a way of connecting women after the tragedy of an on-the-job accident resulting in an injury or fatality. It is our prayer that this will be of great support as we wholeheartedly feel that moral and emotional support, from ladies who truly understand what you are feeling, is vitally important.

In addition to financial, emotional and physical support, NSUJL also offers support to lineworkers and their families through various programs:
