The purpose of the NCFHP Outreach Manual is to provide guidance to outreach workers, program coordinators, administrators, and others tasked with incorporating enabling services into their agency’s health service approach.
The provision of enabling services (outreach, case management, and health education services) helps identify farmworkers in the state and ensures that they have access to primary, preventive, and specialty healthcare services as well as access to health information and linkages to social service providers.

A significant portion of this manual was taken from the Bureau of Primary Health Care’s “Community Outreach Guidance: A Strategy for Reaching Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers” dated February 1994. In addition, content for this manual draws from expectations and experiences specific to the North Carolina Farmworker Health Program and its contract sites. It was last updated in 2012.
