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:

    Hi, my husband has been a lineman for over 20 years. We are in northeast Texas. He was injured on June 28 and stayed home to have surgery on a hernia repair. The day before the surgery they called and cancelled the surgery and then on 8-24 his job fired him saying he refused to come back to work. Which is not the case. My husband loves his job and made great money to just refuse to come back. No he has filed for disability per his orthopedic and it will take about 4 months just to hear back. We are on the verge of losing every thing we own. We have gotten assistance with local services on our utilities. But it’s just not enough. I’m taking a long shot asking for help but I thought why not. We have nothing to lose. He has been injured in the past and had a knee replacement and went back to climbing poles. Then he started doing underground work.
