Nayeli Heredia


Outreach Specialist

  1. Coming from a farm working household in which I learn of hard work and strength, I also experience the struggles and little knowledge my parents had on their working rights along with medical and food resources. After learning of the Resources and Programs the Foundation offered to the farm working community, which inspired me to become part of the team to do more to educate and inform our community on resources they are not knowledgeable of. Especially during this pandemic.
  2. I came on board as Hotline specialist in the call center and now working as an Outreach Specialist, where I Have the opportunity to deliver the information, as well as meeting with growers. Talking directly with the community and learning of other concerns they may have.
