Immigrants and Migrant Workers in New York face all kinds of challenges related to cultural and language barriers as well as poor living conditions. We support programs that serve this population by accomplishing the following types of initiatives:
Building the capacity of health systems to manage diverse communities by developing cultural competency, such as supporting interpreters, community health workers, targeted health services such as mobile health or dental clinics and skills training for healthcare professionals.
Providing English language education, job training, health education and community integration.
Providing safe housing and working conditions in communities that have high numbers of seasonal employees by outreach, mobile health and dental services, and/or onsite seasonal clinics.
Providing trainings and workshops for farm employers on improving working conditions, providing or connecting to health services, and obtaining legal documentation for migrant workers.
Enhancing access to healthcare and to legal services that navigate healthcare, housing, and immigration status issues.
