Rogelio’s Story

Born in Mexico, Rogelio was brought to the United States as an undocumented child. As a young adult, he couldn’t find work without legal residency and soon became homeless. Unsure where to turn, Rogelio’s Case Manager brought him to ALWAYS for help.

With his ALWAYS attorney, Rogelio applied for authorization to live and work in the United States under the Federal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals Program in 2014.  With his application approved, he obtained legal employment and escaped homelessness without fear of deportation.
