If you need help, there are resources available. Below is a list of resources for health, food, and income support. Some of these resources may be limited to U.S. citizens, “qualified immigrants,” or lawfully present individuals. Eligibility may also depend on the state where you live.
Health centers – clinics that provide health care to everyone in the community, regardless of insurance status or ability to pay. If you do not have health insurance, the amount you pay for medical care will depend on your income and family size. You will not be turned away if you are unable to pay. Health Centers work at the local level to connect children with oral health and other primary health care services during peak agricultural periods: https://bphc.hrsa.gov/technical-assistance/clinicalquality-improvement/health-centers-migrant-seasonal-head-star.
