DACA Day Is Coming!
DreamSF is a coordinated response to ensure that San Francisco’s potentially eligible applicants for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process announced by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) on June 15, 2012, are engaged, well-informed with accurate information, and have access to culturally and linguistically competent legal and immigration assistance.
DreamSF will be implemented by the San Francisco Office of Civic Engagement & Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA) in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, Department of Children, Youth & Their Families (DCYF), San Francisco Youth Commission (SF Youth Commission), San Francisco Public Library (SFPL), San Francisco Immigrant Rights Commission (IRC), and San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD), and in collaboration with a network of law enforcement agencies, community, legal service, philanthropic, business and education organizations. The purpose of the initiative is to coordinate city efforts with an array of programs to assist and educate potential applicants (requestors) for deferred action, as well as inform the public about consumer scams related to immigration.
In order to ensure the success and full utilization of the DACA program by all eligible individuals who will benefit from the opportunities that DACA will allow, the OCEIA is providing funding to community based organizations to provide free or low cost assistance to DACA applicants.
