Annually we provide care to over 1,200 patients. We offer mobile medical and nursing care to patients at farmworker camps. MMHP maintains over 50 voucher contract sites to complement the mobile care, and offers transportation, interpretation, and care coordination services to link a patient from the mobile unit to a community provider. To maximize access, our mobile units and outreach workers travel throughout the blueberry, apple, eggs, Christmas trees/wreath, tree-planting, and broccoli harvests.
MMHP is committed to comprehensive care and offers health education and outreach services to farmworkers on key health issues like pesticide safety, hypertension and depression. Promotoras, clinicians and outreach workers speak Spanish and Kreyol to meet the linguistic needs of Maine’ s farmworkers.
MMHP coordinates a farmworkers’ resource center in the downeast region during the blueberry harvest, providing central access to our mobile unit team. The resource center also provides farmworkers with access to educational services, social services, a food pantry, and legal aid.
The Maine Migrant Health Program collaborates year-round with farmworkers, growers, local organizations, and primary care providers to offer Maine’s MSFWs the best possible access to care. MMHP seeks to increase its partnerships with Maine’s community of growers to ensure that our services reach all MSFWs in Maine.
