Provides low rent housing to migrant agricultural working families for 6 months out of the year.
The Hollister Migrant Center has been open to working agricultural families since the 1970’s. The units were remodeled in 1996. The Hollister Migrant Center is home to 67 migrant families from June-November of each year. There are 60 Two-Bedroom units and 7 Three-Bedroom units. The families migrate mostly from Arizona, Texas and Mexico. The families move here to work and then return to their home for 6 months only to come back for another 6 months. It is an on-going cycle. The families pay a reasonable rent that is a big reason why they come back to the center. This is a very tight knit community and the residents do look after each other.
