Migrant Programs in the Southwestern States -- Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah.
National Migrant Information Clearinghouse, Austin, TX. Juarez-Lincoln Center.
Part of the "Comprehensive National Survey of Migrant Programs" series, this directory was prepared for use by agencies working with migrant and seasonal farmworkers in the Southwestern states of Arizona, Colorado, Kansas, Nevada, New Mexico, and Utah. The directory lists programs, services, and resources available to migrants in these states. Special emphasis was placed on information and data current as of summer 1974, obtained from Federal, State, and local agencies in the various states. Information is given for each state on: (1) programs; (2) crops and work periods; (3) migrant population and wages by county; (4) labor camps; and (5) supplementary data such as information sources and exhibits which depict county distribution and state relation to the national migratory patterns. The programs listed provide educational, health, legal, and job placement services to these farmworkers. Some of the listings of organizations, programs, or agencies may contain some obsolete information due to their: instability; being subject to change as new needs, priorities, and objectives appear; or as operating funds expire. Given in the appendix are an annotated bibliography of publications from the National Migrant Information Clearinghouse, Juarez-Lincoln Center and maps of the national migratory patterns, the Navajo Reservation, relative to surrounding states, and a migratory workers' road map.
