It was a year of setting aside fears and joining forces with new friends. It was a year of taking quick action to fight for dignity and respect. From thousands of rapid response DACA grants to believing in first-time business owners when no one else would, here are the stories that left us inspired—and fired up—for the future: bit.ly/MAFBeFearless

Then this year, the news of the court ruling that allowed many DACA recipients like myself to renew came as a great surprise. I quickly got on the computer to reach out for confirmation and for assistance. Mission Asset Fund was the first organization to reply and they were willing to help me with the DACA renewal fee. This financial assistance was a great help because it would have been tough trying to come up with $495 to send in my application. I want to thank everyone at Mission Asset Fund and I also want to thank all the donors. With your assistance, I was able to send my DACA renewal forms to have peace of mind for another two years, to continue being employed and to finish my bachelor’s degree. There is no greater feeling than knowing that somebody believes in me.” - Diego, DACA Fee Assistance Recipient #FacesOfDACA

I had to stop working because my DACA expired. As a DACA recipient from Jamaica, life in the U.S. has been challenging. Not being a citizen, you are treated as if you are ‘less than’, and opportunities for us are very scarce. But I didn't let that stop me from moving forward in life. I refuse to let the system stop me from achieving my dream of success. I want to thank you again for your help. It means so much to me. Words can’t express my gratitude." - Oshane, DACA Fee Assistance recipient #FacesOfDACA

Kitzia called it a “small window of opportunity” when DACA was opened up again earlier this year. Before that, Kitzia was feeling anxious about their status, which was set to expire in less than three months.
Resigned with a political administration that had no long-term legislation in place for dreamers, Kitzia made no financial plan. That was, until January.
If Kitzia’s DACA application is processed quickly, Kitzia hopes to move forward with plans to build credit and get a loan to purchase a car. Kitzia had always taken public transportation, which was challenging because Kitzia has fibromyalgia, a chronic pain disorder that affects the muscles, ligaments, and tendons. With a car, Kitzia can experience some relief getting around the city.
*
In Kitzia’s words, getting DACA means having “the ability to be sustained”. For the rest of us, getting DACA also means that Kitzia can continue making an impact in the community. Kitzia is a community organizer at Causa Justa :: Just Cause, as Co-Director of the Community Rights campaign. In this role, Kitzia aims to build Black and Brown unity along the issues of criminalization and state violence against Black and Latinx Bay Area residents.

Moving from Mexico to Los Angeles, Nora and her husband went hard after the "American Dream" She and her husband worked nonstop, saved plenty, bought a home and started a company selling commercial trailers.
*
Then, the recession hit. They lost their home and their business. Not long after, Nora lost her husband, too—a sudden illness that left Nora reeling, with plenty of bills to manage, alone.
*
With support from MAF partner, Mexican American Opportunity Foundation (MAOF), Nora began to build up her life again. After joining a Lending Circles program in 2016, she increased her credit score from 400 to 660. She got approved for her first credit card in years. Nora joined a second Lending Circle, determined to continue building her credit score, and eventually, purchase a home.

This shero refused to let bankruptcy, debt, or any challenge keep her from pursuing her dreams. Read more about Nora here: bit.ly/NoraStory

“I found out about MAF through my friend, who’s also in same situation as me. I saw a post on Facebook and clicked on it. When I got accepted, I didn’t have to worry about having to save my entire monthly earnings to pay for my DACA fee. For me, it was a burden that was lifted.”
*
“I’ve received a lot of offers already to work at different places within my city—the San Pablo-Richmond area. I plan to work in an immigration office or advocating for kids and youth.”

Dreamers like Saidy pay it forward. Getting #DACAmented means she can graduate from college, get a good job to support herself, and keep fighting for her community. #facesofdaca

It would be a lot to have to start the semester on a stressful note. I know I would figure things out, because that’s what we do, but just having that security MAF’s check gives me and some sort of stability considering everything that is going on...I really appreciate it.” - Kenia, intern at Prisoner Advocacy Network, future public defender

With books to buy for the semester, this means her family doesn't have to choose between covering her school costs or her DACA renewal. 7,600+ Dreamers like Kenia have been able to renew their DACA permits since September.

“When I received DACA, I was 17, still in high school. Then the next year, life took a turn. I had to go to work, I had to help my family out. Right now I’m doing both--going to work and school full time. I’m focused on paying my family’s bills and helping out the most I can. If I didn’t receive help from MAF, I would have had to tell my family, ‘Hey, we’re going to be short on rent’. It never, never crossed my mind to not apply for DACA this year. This takes a whole lot of weight off my shoulders.”
-
This Valentine’s day, we’re humbled to have played a part in Salvador’s story. And we know his is just one of many stories that show dreamers’ resilience and resourcefulness, not just for their own sake, but for their loved ones too. #ValentinesDay #FacesofDACA
