Challenge

In addition to providing translation during crisis calls to our 24/7 domestic violence hotline, we also must use interpreting services for case management and counseling for clients with limited English proficiency in our Safehouse, Family Home, and HomeStart Supportive Housing Program.

Solution

Translators conduct themselves with compassion and empathy and understand how to convey complex personal information, such as a medical diagnosis, setting goals, and critical parenting information for our clients.

Long-Term Impact

In the last year, Doorways served 256 parents and children in its three residential programs, and another 1,656 through our 24/7 domestic violence hotline and court advocacy services.
