March 20, 2017 Media
A new partnership among Roanoke-area organizations to provide interpreters for victims of domestic violence has already assisted dozens of residents with limited English proficiency.
Health and Wellness Interpreters of the Roanoke Valley has worked with more than 30 people since the program began in November through Family Service of Roanoke Valley. The interpreters come from VOLATIA.
"It helps refugees that come to the United States, much like my family did. … Having equal access to public information, and to be heard is truly the ingredient of communication in any culture," VOLATIA CEO Baraka Kasonga said about the service.
