Social Services & Resources

The Center for DREAMers is now closed as the two-year grant has come to an end in October 2023. We are grateful for all of the incredible work we were able to accomplish through the Baldwin Wisconsin Idea Endowment Foundation. This website will remain available for its resources and download library, however, it will no longer be updated.

In collaboration with the School of Social Work at UW-Madison, the Center for DREAMers provides training to MSW students to inform students of culturally responsive ways to provide support and services to DACAmented and undocumented individuals.

The center for DREAMers also provides culturally competent social and mental health services to DACAmented students through our referral program.
