Free DACA Renewal Application Assistance

Because of the current COVID-19 health crisis we are unable to provide in-person clinics at this time. However, we are providing free virtual appointments for help with renewing your DACA status. Please call us 4-5 months before your current DACA authorization expires to ensure that we can help you renew before your authorization expires. Call 1-855-313-7326 to RSVP for one of these upcoming clinics.

Please note that we are not able to provide consultations for initial applications for DACA at this time but we are hosting legal workshops. Please see the top of this page for information on how to register.
