Language Access Services

El Pueblo has provided low-cost and pro bono translation and interpretation services in English and Spanish for clients and partner agencies since 2008. When our immigrant survivor clients are referred to free counseling services, shelters, and other victims services at partner agencies, a member of our staff often accompanies them to offer interpretation services as there is extremely limited access to pro bono bilingual counselors, therapists or shelter staff in South Mississippi. We frequently accompany clients to interpret and gather evidence at doctor’s appointments and law enforcement interviews and to translate personal documents. We have also signed a memorandum of understanding to provide language access services to the Gulf Coast Women’s Center for Nonviolence and others.
