The Project brings together seasonal farmworkers, farmers, community partners, and volunteers. It provides the seasonal migrant workers access to important services. With a holistic approach, our staff and volunteers come together to support the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of the seasonal migrant workers.

We build bridges with our migrant farmworkers, neighbours, and provide a safe space for them.

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.

Farmworkers asked for medical assistance after work hours in order to avoid an income loss and needed assistance of a Spanish language interpreter.

Father Antonio celebrates Sunday services at the different parishes that host the Project and in the seasonal migrant farmworker residences in the farmlands.
