Get an Immigration Screening

Help for all immigrants

An estimated 12 to 15% of undocumented immigrants actually have options for some sort of immigration documentation. Make an appointment with an organization listed below for an immigration screening.

Other resources:

  • In addition to an immigration screening, visit immi.org to learn about immigration options.
  • Immigrants should save the Rapid Response Hotline number to get same-day legal assistance if they experience Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) activity in SF.
    415‑200‑1548

Who can help

These organizations offer immigration screenings to look at all possible legal options. Most of them can also help to renew a Green Card or DACA. For San Franciscans, initial consultations are generally low-cost or free.
