Worker in OrchardWelcome to the website of Child & Migrant Services (CMS), a non-profit that serves migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families in Mesa County, Colorado. CMS is located in the town of Palisade, a beautiful, small town nestled in the midst of beautiful orchards and vineyards.

CMS is the vision of three women in 1954 who dedicated their lives to this great work. Their vision started around a kitchen table and led to the mobilization of local churches to provide basic needs for farm workers with a trailer.

Through this website, you can see the range of services CMS provides; more important, you will have a glimpse of the lives of migrant and seasonal farm workers in Colorado, their contribution to Western Colorado's economy and how much CMS means to them.

OrchardThe Hospitality Center, where CMS is housed, is a welcoming community center. It is not just about having a home for those who have traveled far to work on the fields of Western Colorado. It is also about welcoming you to be a part of a community that is filled with sweats of hard work, aroma of ethnic food and culture, and the joy of giving and sharing. Please join us in celebrating the spirit of this great work. Thank you!

CHILD & MIGRANT SERVICES WILL REOPEN MAY 1, 2014.  WE LOOK FORWARD TO SERVING THE FARMWORKER COMMUNITY THIS SUMMER!
