Centro Campesino offers a variety of programs through volunteer committees: Housing, Human Rights, Health Care, Employment, Service, Education and Culture. Each one functions in an area of serious concern for the farmworker families.
Housing Committee developed a revolving loan fund to stimulate loans for adequate and affordable housing. Families looking to purchase a new home or make renovations to their existing home can find more information about the revolving loan fund on the Housing page under Programs.
Service Committee established the Food Bank that provides the staff and volunteers food resources for the hard work and hours they dedicate to the Centro. Another sector of the Service Committee is Mujeres Valientes (Valiant Women), which assists women and children in situations of domestic violence.
Health Care Committee organizes a series of Free Clinics for families without insurance, recruits physicians to see families in their offices at low costs and establishes payment plans for these families.
Human Rights Committee evolved into the Immigration Project that supports the immigration services the Centro Campesino provides.
Employment Committee works for fair wages and better working conditions and deals with other work-related issues of the community.
Education Committee provides GED, ESL and citizenship classes for adults and organizes a youth group for teens ages 13-18 and a Girls Scout troop for girls in middle school. You can find more information on when each class, the youth group and the Girl Scout troop on the Education page under Programs.
Culture Committee includes the Farmworker Ministry's Cesar Chávez Ballet Folklórico that performs each year at the annual Fiesta fundraiser, as well as different local festivals and events throughout the year.
