how do we help?


ACS is a nonprofit organization here in SLC that helps the Latinx community with legal, health, and workplace safety resources. One of the many programs that we offer is legal help to undocumented individuals. We created our DACA FUND to help break down financial barriers that some dreamers may be facing. 100% of your donation will go towards application fees for a future dreamer. ACS has the credentials to practice under DHS (department of homeland security). Thank you for your donation! #HERETOSTAY
