Without volunteers, supporters and community partners, House Farm Workers! could not accomplish its mission. There are plenty of ways for you to get involved, and to help improve your community and the lives of your farm worker neighbors. Join one of our city committees, which meet in Camarillo, Fillmore, Moorpark, Oxnard, Santa Paula and Ventura (see meeting times below). Are you a high school or college student and want to get involved? Join our Young Advocates committee. Encourage your elected officials to address the need for farm worker housing. Express your support and testify at planning commission, city council, and County Board of Supervisors meetings. Arrange for a film presentation to your church or civic organization of “From Harvest to Home,” a 10-minute film that puts a human face on the issue. Donate land, money or time to help build or rehabilitate a home. Interested volunteers can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
