Success Story

Joane, Michigan

Meet Joane

Joane - Michigan - Telamon Success Story

Meet Joane, who has been involved with Telamon in Michigan since she was a very young child, enrolled in Telamon’s Migrant Head Start program.

Throughout the course of Joane’s childhood, her parents traveled between Michigan, North Carolina, and Michigan, picking tomatoes.  In her own words:

Growing up in a farm worker migrant family was difficult. Not knowing where we would live was the hardest part. Most of the time we would stay at a family trailer until my parents were able to find something. It could’ve taken days, weeks, and sometimes months before we were able to find our own place. I also remember there would be times when we would have really bad rainy season and it would destroy the crops. This would make it difficult for my parents to provide for us. During these hard times, my parents would go to lakes to fish, just to make sure we had food on the table.
