Mission: We befriend farmworker families in Ventura County by supporting, celebrating, and advocating for them.
Friends of Fieldworkers organized its first ever "Adopt-a-Family" program, serving over 100 farmworker families. We will be hosting holiday parties for our families.
If you still want to give a gift year-round, please donate to Friends of Fieldworkers.
Our Executive Director, Dr Martita Martinez-Bravo, has been recognized by the Los Angeles Rams with a pLAymaker award. The award honors Kenny Washington, the first Black NFL player who played with the Rams with the jersey #13. Per the Rams, “each of the 13 playmakers is defined by core values he exemplified, including perseverance in the face of adversity, dedication to their goals, fortitude through breaking barriers, and inspiring others around them to make a difference.”
Laundry Love is a monthly program in Oxnard and El Rio at local laundromats. Check out photos from a recent Oxnard event below, when children were given backpacks with school supplies and families were given Target gift cards. Our children's program is also a big hit!
