Immokalee Housing & Family Services is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit farm worker housing organization dedicated to providing our residents with decent, safe and affordable places to live and raise their families.
We own and operate three different rental properties, Sanders Pines, Timber Ridge and Esperanza Place, providing 125 affordable rental units to farm worker and other low-income families in Immokalee, Florida. As Immokalee Housing & Family Services (IHFS) grew to serve more families we also began providing supportive educational and social services.
OUR MISSION is to provide decent, safe and affordable rental housing with supportive social and educational services for farmworkers and other low-income families.
Our typical family earns less than $20,000 per year with few opportunities to secure decent, safe, and affordable housing. In addition to being low-income most of our families are immigrants from Haiti and Latin America. Few have the English language skills necessary to help further their children’s education. IHFS is unique in providing supportive social services at no cost to our residents. We currently offer the following programs:
- monthly resident council meetings
- family literacy classes
- teen programing
- childcare and voluntary pre-kindergarten
- various community events
- and a community garden
