Dreamers (DACA)

Working with DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients can be a vital and rewarding experience, as these individuals often face significant challenges and obstacles in their lives. DACA is a program that allows individuals who were brought to the United States as children without legal documentation to apply for temporary protection from deportation and eligibility for work authorization.

As a professional working with DACA recipients, it is important to approach your work with sensitivity, empathy, and a non-judgmental attitude. These individuals may have experienced trauma, discrimination, and stress related to their immigration status, and may require assistance in navigating the complex and often confusing legal and social systems.
