Migrant farm workers face uncertainty and a lack of resources in securing seasonal opportunities to support themselves and their families. In addition, for farm employers, traditional methods such as recruiters are inefficient and costly.
AgHelp is a mobile platform that connects agricultural employers, support agencies, and workers. It will improve worker health, security, and earning potential. AgHelp will allow farmers to maximize available local labor and source labor nationally; cheaper than any recruiting tool on the market. It will also allow agencies to serve more workers resulting in increased state and federal funding.
While in the 2018 Accelerator program, AgHelp performed customer discovery, began web and mobile platform development, and created a launch plan for October of 2018.
