Many of our migratory families have reported a need for school supplies, affordable housing, food assistance, transportation, affordable childcare, and access to affordable medical and dental care. Fulfilling these physiological and safety needs would help the human body to function optimally so students have a better chance of educational success. Due to limited funds, we are always looking for free resources that would benefit our migratory families and children. If your organization would be able to help provide much-needed resources or services for our students to be successful, please let me know how you can help.
We are also looking for new avenues to educate people about the Migrant Education Program. If your organization can help with spreading the word, this link will take you to our brochures and posters on our webpage that can be sent to anyone interested.
If you would like us to add your agency’s information to our Minnesota Resources page or if you have any questions contact Cris Young at Christine.firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-890-4853.
