An Assessment of the Experimental and Demonstration Interstate Program for South Texas Migrants.
Abt Associates, Inc., Cambridge, MA.
The overall purpose of this program was to develop and determine the feasibility and value of a coordinated interstate program of multi-agency resources for Mexican American migrant farm workers. Basic areas of concern leading to this goal were (1) the need for a program of employability and supportive services for migrant families who, because of diminishing job opportunities due to mechanization of agriculture, wish to leave the migrant stream and (2) the need for a wide range of supportive services for migrant families who choose to remain in the migrant stream each year. Following the introduction, the report presents findings, conclusions, and recommendations concerning the Experimental and Demonstration Program for South Texas Migrants. The report is based on field interviews with project staff, members of other related organizations, employers, and migrant workers; qualitative and quantitative analysis of data gathered during the field work; inputs supplied by other companies involved in the program assessment; and library research.
