Migrant Head Start sites and Migrant Health Centers are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of farmworker families. Many Health Centers partner with their local Migrant Head Start site but the strength of that collaboration varies widely. Farmworker Justice and the National Migrant and Seasonal Head Start Collaboration Office (MSHSCO) have been working with MSHS grantees and Health Centers to strengthen their collaborations to serve not just MSHS children but also their families. During this session, we will discuss different levels of partnership so participants can assess their collaboration with the Health Centers. We will also share strategies to strengthen the partnership, highlighting the partnership between Greene County Health Care and Migrant Head Start. Participants will share their own experiences working with Health Centers.
