Friends of Fieldworkers provides meaningful programs that meet basic needs, support aspirational goals, and celebrate the families we serve.
Friends of Fieldworkers identifies struggling farmworker families who create a wishlist for the holidays. Sponsors are then matched with families and can attend a holiday party or deliver the gifts prior to the party.
We fund monthly Laundry Love programs in El Rio and Oxnard. Our organization provides laundry services free of charge to families. Children come along and join in the fun at our children's activity tables.
We provide scholarships to local students whose parents are farmworkers in Ventura County. This program is possible through generous donors who wish to change the lives of these student recipients. If you would like to be a scholarship donor, please contact us directly.
We provide emergency funding to families who are experiencing a variety of crisis situations such as illness, injury, or loss of housing. A significant number of families have been referred to us from neonatal ICU's due to medical issues with newborn babies. We connect with these families personally and provide them with immediate financial relief.
On a selective basis, we partner with local and regional organizations to meet the needs of farmworker families. The LA Rams have provided meals to farmworkers in the fields and St. Jude the Apostle Catholic Church in Westlake made 100 Easter baskets for our children!
