Migrant Health Centers

Migrant health centers are health centers that receive additional federal funding to target migrant and seasonal farmworkers (MSFWs) and their families. Currently 24 health centers in the Northwest receive funding to serve MSFWs.  In 2008 these health centers served over 118,000 MSFWs and their family members. Like health centers in general, migrant health centers deliver comprehensive, high quality, preventive and primary care services to all people regardless of financial or insurance status. In addition, migrant health centers employ enabling services in order to reduce barriers that farmworkers face in accessing health care. These services include outreach, transportation, interpretation, case management, patient navigation, and the use of community health worker or promotor/a de salud programs
