Access to Essential Services

We provide immigrants and farmworkers with the information and assistance they need, ensuring equitable access to medical care, government assistance, employment, housing, and other social services.


Our Community Advocacy program promotes leadership development and provides resources and support to cultivate community engagement and positive change. It also increases the capacity of local service providers and organizations to provide culturally responsive and relevant services.


Finding available and affordable housing can be a challenge in Downeast Maine. In response, in 2011, we worked in collaboration with community partners and with funding from the USDA to build subsidized apartments specifically for farm and aquaculture workers. The housing unit was the first of its kind in the state of Maine.

Migrant Education

In partnership with the Maine Migrant Education Program, we serve as advocates for migrant agricultural and fishing workers and their families to compensate for educational disruption resulting from their mobile lifestyles. We also provide instructional and support services to over 300 migrant children and youth per year from the Passamaquoddy and Mi’kmaq Nations, Central America, the United States, and within Maine.
