Migrant Farmworkers Project
Migrant Farmworkers Project engages the seasonal farmworkers, farmers, community partners, and volunteers to work together. The Project provides the seasonal workers access to needed services to address their holistic needs including physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Migrant Farmworkers Project builds welcoming relationships and spaces with seasonal workers.
Presently we provide traditional and ethnic grocery bags due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Donate a Bike
Niagara farmworkers need bikes to shop, get groceries and access services.
Life shouldn’t be all work and no play. That’s why we have a festival each year.
Internet Cafe & WiFi
Many farmworkers have smartphones, which they use to stay in contact with their spouses and children. We provide free WIFI services to enable them to use Skype to call home.
Medical Help Triage Clinic
Farmworkers were asking for medical assistance on Sunday evenings because they were ill and unable to speak English.
Spanish Church Service
Father Antonio celebrates Sunday services at the different parishes that host the Project and in the seasonal migrant farmworker residences in the farmlands.
Please donate your gently used or new winter clothing for migrant farmworkers.
All adult sizes welcome for male and female workers.
We provide about 350 welcome bags to new arrivals each year.
Welcome bags are gender specific and contain an assortment of items – gloves, pain medication, sunscreen, soaps, shavers, and personal hygiene products.
