Hardworking migrants who harvest vegetables in Palm Beach County every year often need a helping hand. The Farmworkers Coordinating Council of Palm Beach, Inc. has been a trusted source for community services for these laborers since 1978. Its mission is to promote self-sufficiency and improve the quality of life through education, advocacy, and access to services. It connects families with essentials such as healthcare, housing, and social services. With offices in Lake Worth and Belle Glade, the Council promotes self-sufficiency through several important programs. The first, Assistance for Housing Opportunities to Promote Employment (A-HOPE), provides emergency housing. Another, Bringing Resources and Information to Develop Gains in Education and Health (BRIDGE), helps children of farmworkers succeed in school. The agency’s Community Health Access Teams (CHAT) program helps families find healthcare coverage, while the Family Preservation & Economic Stabilization (FPES) program provides support to families going through an economic crisis. With its dynamic programs, the Council is helping thousands of families look to the future with hope.
