Who We Are And Who We Serve
Migrant Farmworkers Assistance Fund (MFAF) is based in Kansas City, Missouri. In 1984, MFAF's services were organized originally as part of Migrant Farmworkers Project (MFP), a project of Legal Aid of Western Missouri. MFAF was established as a separate non-profit in 1998, and was accorded 501c3 IRS status in 2003. MFAF serves and empowers Missouri's migrant and seasonal farmworkers. MFAF's staff meet with migrant farmworkers when they first arrive at the orchards in late summer to determine their eligibility for public benefits, for medical and dental services, and to complete school enrollment forms. From then until workers migrate elsewhere, MFAF seeks to meet critical needs and assist with a variety of health and other issues. For those families that settle in the area, ongoing assistance is provided.
Congrats to our 2016 graduates and their families!
