Serving Migrant Families, 1975.
Oliver, Barbara, Ed.
The directory describes services provided to migratory agricultural workers and their families, through the governmental and nongovernmental agencies interested in and responsible for their well-being. Agencies are grouped into: (1) United States government agencies, (2) North Carolina State government agencies, and (3) private organizations. Among the services provided by the various agencies are: adult basic education; camp inspection; consumer education; counseling; crew leader registration and training; day care; family planning; health services; home care instruction; job development, training, and placement; legal services; self-help housing loans; and emergency transportation. Although the services appear to be all-encompassing, most have limitations based on such factors as definition of migrants, jurisdiction of serving agency, funding requirements and limitations, availability of staff, and limitations to indigenous population. Lists of members of the State Advisory Committee on Services to Migrants and contact persons for the various agencies are provided. An index of services available to migrants is included. (NQ)
