Success Stories

Crystal, her twin sister, and her mother and father live at Buena Vista, one of HCD’s seasonal migrant farmworker housing centers. After moving through a series of crowded motel rooms for most of her early life, Crystal still remembers the excitement of waking up in her own home at Buena Vista back in 2004.

 “The first thing my sister and I did when we woke up was we went running to the front window. We looked out and we saw kids playing outside. We got really excited.”

HCD provides grants to local government agencies to operate Buena Vista and 23 other migrant farmworker centers across California. These grants help to keep rents low, so that families like Crystal’s can focus  on the future. And, due in part to their safe, comfortable and affordable home at Buena Vista Migrant Center, their future is looking bright.
