Mission Statement

Episcopal Farmworker Ministry responds to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families, and actively supports opportunities for them to become self-directive. We seek to minister to farmworkers in three principal ways:

- through direct services
- through development and support of programs that work towards the empowerment of farmworkers
- by encouraging leadership development, advocacy, and education aimed toward a systematic change of agricultural policy at local and state levels.

Description

We work to change the world of farmworkers and the system that keeps them captive. We offer the following programs and services:

- Immigration assistance

- Visitors' program

- Sacramental ministry

- English as a Second Language classes

- Adopt-a-Camp program

- Leadership program for farmworkers

- Farmworker festival in September

- Clothing distribution
