Welcome to MET, Inc !

Motivation Education & Training, Inc. (MET Inc.) was incorporated in 1967 to provide academic and vocational training to migrant and seasonal farmworkers with the objective of furthering participants’ economic self-sufficiency. Housing for migrant and seasonal farmworkers was added to MET’s work agenda in the early 1970s.

Since its founding, MET has served over 93,688 farmworkers with employment and training help, and provided over 173,992 farmworkers with emergency and other supportive services, which includes a myriad of housing services. While serving farmworkers is still the cornerstone of the agency's mission, MET’s scope also includes initiatives that target low-income and disadvantaged populations throughout the agency's service area.

MET operates eight Head Start centers and three Early Head Start centers throughout southeast Texas, serving a total of 909 children annually. In 2012, MET became a sub-grantee for the Department of Labor’s Senior Community Service Employment Program, which seeks to employ senior citizens. MET operates this program in 65 counties in the Texas Panhandle.

MET’s service area includes five states: Texas, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Wyoming. Employment and training is provided to farmworkers in all five states. In addition to housing services in Texas, some housing services are provided to farmworkers and other low-income households in Minnesota and Louisiana.
