MMHP’s work and reach is greatly enhanced by our volunteers. Last year our amazing volunteers contributed over 700 hours! Getting involved with MMHP not only results in mobile unit vists or food being distributed, but it builds stronger relationships between local communities and the farmworkers who are living and working in their own backyards.
We are especially in need of volunteers who speak and write Spanish or Haitian-Creole. If you are a clinician interested in providing care, contact us!
Here are our major harvest areas across the state:

Blueberry Harvest: Along the Coast from Warren to Calais during August
