38% of our clients are Spanish Speaking, 35% are Chinese speaking. When we have no translators, new clients who don’t speak English might walk away with out receiving our help. We’ve been know to play charades with clients who are trying to ask for supplies.
We love helping our clients however we can, but we’d rather give them more than just free supplies. Translators allow us to do more the families coming to our center. People with even basic Spanish or Chinese language skills can help offer more complete services to our clients with the greatest needs.
