Voices Languages Services

Voices Language Services provides professional document translations and on-site spoken language interpretation in more than seventeen languages. Services are provided throughout Florida for Gulf Coast JFCS programs and to the community at large. Voices is funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Refugee Resettlement and through private fees.

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.
