“I am an agricultural worker. I asked for help because I lost my job back in 2017. When you work at a farm, if you lose your job you also lose your housing.

I lived with my family at Slocum House in January 2017 for a few days. There are so many agricultural workers like me who need support. When we get injured or we become sick, we don’t have anywhere to go. Many farmers kick us out of the house and fire us, and having a safe place to stay temporarily is a blessing.

We have a lot of good people who support us, we are not alone and we can continue to provide a place for people like us to feel safe. Please help us to keep Slocum House open for immigrants and farmworkers.”
