Free Immigration Consultations And Assistance to Renew Applications

 

Catholic Charities’ Refugee and Immigrant Services Program in San Mateo will be conducting free DACA workshops every Monday until October 2nd and on Tuesday October 3rd. There will also be workshops in the Mexican Consulate in San Francisco on September 22nd. All workshops during this period will be free of cost.

Children with a fear of deportation demonstrate an increased occurrence of social isolation, depression, and anxiety. They can become withdrawn and aggressive, have a deteriorating school performance, and often fight with peers or teachers, putting them at risk for difficulties later in life.

The Office of Diversity and Equity (ODE) will continue to support immigrant communities including DACA recipients as part of our mission and commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion for marginalized communities. 

We continue to offer ‘Know Your Rights’ cards, or ‘Red Cards’ which are found here, and ‘Dealing with Community Stress’ cards and other post- election resources found here.
