Helping Farmers Help Themselves
JOIN OUR TEAM
As a 28-year old, award-winning nonprofit organization, CCA provides education, orientation and legal support to farm workers and other low-income working families who want to establish neighborhood committees that work to improve housing and health conditions in the Salinas and Pajaro Valleys. Our vision is of a community where farmworkers are empowered to serve as leaders and where community decision makers seek the counsel of these farm worker leaders. CCA’s organizing model is considered one of the best in the state of California.
CCA-trained committees receive instruction that teaches farmworkers how to establish alliances with local public officials and local civic leaders. These alliances help farmworkers achieve local policies that help their efforts to improve farmworker health and housing conditions.
If you think you would like to establish a neighborhood committee to help you resolve your housing or health issues, contact CCA for assistance. We will make every effort to assist you or refer you to the appropriate individual or agency.
