The Education program provides education, childcare, and ensures the well-being of the migrant community. The Education Committee collaborates with the Marlington Local Schools and Head Start program regarding issues of education, youth programming, GED, and ESL. After school and summer programs provide safe, fun, and educational activities for migrant children.
The Hartville Migrant Ministry has an on-site free clinic for the migrant workers and their families during the growing season. A wide variety of medical services are provided by a large group of dedicated medical professionals and students from nearby universities.
This program is faith-based rather than denomination-based. It fosters and strengthens the spiritual life of the migrant workers and their families, and includes pastoral care, the administration of the sacraments, Bible study, the Christian education of children and young people, and the gathering for corporate worship.
The Hospitality program plans activities, programs, and events that bring a sense of community and support to the families, including distributing welcome bags, picnics, book bag/school supplies, and offering various children’s activities throughout the growing season.
The Property coordinator works with churches, skilled trade organizations, community volunteers to ensure the oversight, maintenance, and protection of the property, building, and equipment of the Migrant Center.
