Saratoga County EOC’s Latino Community Advocacy Program operates a full-time seasonal office at the recreation hall at the Saratoga Race Course where we provide vital services to the largely immigrant backstretch workforce who care for the racehorses. Our bilingual staff organize programming and meet one on one to address the individual needs of workers and their families. We work to create a welcoming community where all workers feel comfortable turning for help and feel connected to the local community.

Your gift will support services for backstretch workers at the Saratoga Race Course and positively impact the lives of many in our community.
