DACA : Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

How To Help Our DACAmented friends?

(This organization is in Dallas…follow this link for San Antonio DACA resources)

By Donating to the North Texas Dream Team!

NTDT has been LEADING the effort up in Dallas.  Each application costs $495, DSA is spearheading the fundraising, and NTDT will be administering and disbursing the funds based on a committee’s review of applicants. They only have a month donate and SHARE!!!!!!

“The North Texas Dream Team has been dedicated to DACA work since the inception of the program in 2012. We have helped over 8,000 applicants in the North Texas area apply and renew their DACA applications at NO cost to them. We have trained about the same number of volunteers to help out at both our DACA Wednesdays and DACA Mega Workshops, and we estimate that we have saved the community at least 1 million dollars (but upwards of 6 or 7) in legal fees.
NTDT has partnered up with DSA North Texas to fundraise for those who are financially in need of assistance to apply for renewal. Each application costs $495! DSA is spearheading the fundraising, and NTDT will be administering and disbursing the funds based on a committee’s review of applicants. What does that mean? The more people donate, the more people that can be helped!
Please SHARE the fundraising link youcaring.com/dsadacadefense & chip in as much or as little as you can. 100% of these funds are going to renewals.”
