There are several options to book an appointment to renew your DACA or apply for Advance Parole through DACA with CARECEN.
FAMILY SOURCE CENTERS
If you live in the City of Los Angeles, you can register for our services through one of our offsite partners. This may be the fastest way to get an appointment. If interested in being referred, please call (213) 385-7800 Ext. 209 or you can contact the offsite partner directly (whichever is convenient for you).
You will need to register with the offsite prior to receiving our services. If you contact the site directly, let them know you are requesting immigration legal services from CARECEN. Here is a list of our current offsite partners:

NEW AMERICANS PROGRAM OF THE LOS ANGELES PUBLIC LIBRARY
CARECEN is one of several legal service providers offering services at the Los Angeles Public Library (LAPL). Services are available to California residents without income restrictions.
If you are a returning CARECEN client and are interested in booking an appointment with LAPL, please call (213) 385-7800 Ext. 209.
If you are not a returning CARECEN client, we cannot guarantee that your appointment will be scheduled with us. To book an appointment, please call the library at (213) 228-7390 and leave a message. A library staff member will return your call within two working days. Appointments can also be booked through the library’s booking website: https://nai.lapl.org
BOOK AN APPOINTMENT DIRECTLY WITH CARECEN STAFF
Click HERE to book an appointment through our online scheduler. Your DACA Renewal will be free of charge if your household earns under 250% of the Federal Poverty Line. If you earn over 250% of the federal poverty line, you will be responsible for paying our legal services fees, which range from $200-250 for a simple case and $600+ for a complex case.
You can avoid these fees if you book through one of our offsite partners (Family Source Centers or the Los Angeles Public Library, see list above). There is no fee for our legal services at our offsites.
Finally, we do offer Advance Parole services directly with CARECEN. Again, to avoid the legal services charge, we also recommend that you book an appointment through one of our offsites.
