“Since I have been in the program I have been able to meet almost all of the teacher/parent conferences through the interpreter services.”
“Interpreter services has been wonderful especially in the immigration service area during parent/teacher conferences.”
The VOICES program provides interpretation and translation services to increase access to services for non-English speakers. VOICES helps bridge the gap of language and culture by recruiting a pool of professionally trained interpreters to assist clients in accessing services in their community. This fee-based program provides trained and skilled spoken language interpreters in Pinellas, Hillsborough, Paso, Palm Beach and Miami-Dade counties.
In the United States, programs and services that are receiving federal funds are required to provide language access to every Limited English Proficient (LEP) client who seeks their services (Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, 1964). By using VOICES, your program is taking an important step to achieve this language accessibility compliance.
VOICES interpreters are selected for their professionalism, their proficiency in both English and another language, and their ability to provide bi-cultural support to both clients and providers. Currently, we have 19 languages available for interpretation and translation services.
This project is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement, the Florida Department of Children and Families, Office of Refugee Services and individual providers who access our services.
