I have never seen such a group of dedicated and committed professionals who are willing to go the extra mile to help Farm Workers and their families so they will be able to live healthy lives. My hat and heart go out to these physicians and health workers who care so much for the people who need their help the most.

Great organization with committed and dedicated health care professionals that focus on the migrating population for at risk workers and families, from exposure to pesticides, helping to prevent family violence, to managing TB treatment for individuals who are frequently changing locations.

OMG, this is The Best Non-profit ever! As a clinician (pediatrician), i use them to help my patients, who need to move to another community. Often, these patients are poor. MCN helps them locate a clinic in their destination community, secures an appointment for them, and lets the patient know what paperwork they will need to take with them. But they do not stop there. They follow up on the patient, until they have made it to their new community and have gone to their appointment. Then, they call the physician in that clinic to make sure he/she had a good experience with the patient. Then, they follow up with the patient. If everyone is happy and satisfied, then they contact me to let me know my patient has found a new medical home. NO OTHER ORGANIZATION DOES THIS with this efficiency and respect for all concerned. If you are a physician, consider them like a transport team, who is assuming care until they have been delivered to the emergency room. They are fluent in multiple languages. And this service is FREE. They survive on grants and fundraising.

I have utilized their services for over a decade. They now help me connect immigrant families crossing the southern border with clinics in their destination communities across the country. They are a vital link in this effort to ensure that ill immigrant children will be able to be seen by a physician, as soon as they arrive.

I so admire their work, that I asked, if I could serve on their board of directors. Proud to be a part of this compassionate group. Please consider donating to their efforts. I try to donate at every chance.

Most sincerely,

Marsha R. Griffin, MD (pediatrician on the border)

MCN offers invaluable support to the clinicians who care for the most vulnerable and marginalized families in our country. These families provide critical services to our nation and without their presence, many of us would not have food and other comforts we consider privileges. Please support MCN in their important work. Vicki Thuesen, FNP

I’m a family doc at a community clinic, and while I don’t treat many migrants, MCN’s work and the experience they share on their newsletter informs and improves my care of my patients.

I work with the Migrant Education Program in our school district and I truly appreciate all that you do and hope you can continue supporting migrant workers and their families. I go out and recruit migrant families in our district to offer supportive services, like daycare services, school registration assistance, translating etc. and being able to provide health information that is available through your website has been very helpful.

Thanks for all you do,
Mrs. Jimenez
