Yakima County is the fruit basket of Washington and offers livelihood to many families with the abundance of its harvest.  The harvest includes the nation’s leading export of hops and exports in apples, grapes, cherries, and asparagus.  The Yakima Valley is also home to many breweries, wineries, and cider houses.  The abundance of agriculture contributes to the livelihood of our migrant farmworkers, warehouse workers, transportation industry, food industry, sustainability in farm-to-table programs, and more.  Healthy communities are needed to produce these services. In addition, Yakima Valley Farm Workers Clinic is dedicated to ensuring we are available to keep our communities healthy, educated, and informed of our services.

We are who we are because of our migrant farmworkers. These short clips share a glimpse of the dedication of the YVFWC programs and medical services to the larger community, our health, and our families:
