About

The Bridges to Health Program exists to help Vermont's migrant workers - the backbone of Vermont’s agricultural and service economy - access medical and social services with the dignity that they deserve.

We have a proven record of success. In the past year, we have: 

  • Provided assistance for more than 850 clients, including over 125 children, to complete health insurance applications, apply for financial assistance, receive prenatal care, manage chronic health conditions, and more. 
  • Coordinated more than 1,068 appointments with health care providers. 
  • Brought vaccine education and clinics to work sites and homes of 429 individuals.
  • Collaborated with food access programs to bring healthy food to 264 individuals across 81 households and grew kitchen gardens with 26 households.
  • Staff and volunteers logged over 50,000 miles driving clients to 263 medical appointments and provided interpretation services at 168 appointments.

To continue to provide these services, we need the support of our community to ensure the migrant workers we currently help are not left without assistance and to have the ability to support additional families. 

Please consider showing your support for our efforts by making a gift today

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of families in need.
