This descriptive study was designed to identify those people North American black migrant farmworkers in eastern North Carolina considered to be supportive. The sample included 96 black male and female migrant workers between 18 and 60 years of age. Face to face interviews were conducted by seven interviewers in migrant camps in three rural counties and one migrant health center. The questionnaire consisted of 23 multiple choice questions and described supportive persons sought out by farmworkers to consult about concerns over personal or health problems. The majority of the farmworkers perceived that the crewleader was the one person in the camp that farmworkers turned to for help. The nursing implications of this dependent relationship are discussed, and strategies to strengthen supportive relationships for farmworkers are described.
