April’s Safety Message
Nearly 75% of child agricultural injuries happen to children who are not working. Often, children do not have a safe place to be when their parents are working. Many families working in agriculture, particularly migrant and immigrant families, face barriers in accessing safe, affordable childcare services. There are organizations that can help provide these essential services to farmworker families.
Migrant Head Start
Serves nearly 37,500 children of agricultural workers each year throughout the country. Find your local Migrant Head Start program.
Many states offer migrant education programs and/or summer school programs. Visit your state’s Department of Education website to find a summer program in your area.
