"These pages are sent out to introduce a little-known group and to suggest the possibilities of this great home mission opportunity: to paint a word picture of the work now being done in migratory camps.[...]The national women's home mission boards, societies, and committees of the United States and Canada are co-operating through the Council of Women for Home Missions in the happy task of following these migrant families wherever they may go; of finding them where they are; of bringing to them and to the communities which harbor them the message of the two great commandments - love to God and love for man. This is the migrant challenge. Whether migratory labor is to be an asset or a liability in America's future - economic, social, and spiritual - will be determined by the way in which church and community groups accept or refuse responsibility." -from the foreword.
