Children and families arriving at the U.S. border to ask for protection is not new and is not unexpected. But this year we have seen a large increase in children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Children with legal representation are 5X more likely to gain U.S. protection. Children with access to culturally sensitive social and language services are more likely to thrive.

And this is why Ayuda’s work is so critical.

This summer YOU have the unique opportunity to help fundraise for Ayuda and help immigrant children access the holistic services they need.

LEP & Deaf Clients

Some immigrants find that they suffer from linguistic isolation once here in the United States. They may feel unwelcome or unable to access necessary services due to the language barrier. 

Ayuda’s Language Access Program provides free professional interpretation and document translation services to approximately 100 nonprofits and law firms in the DC Metropolitan area. 

Our program is a national leader in language access and language justice; we have developed unique trainings to prepare interpreters to work in legal and victim services.

 Deaf & Hard-of-Hearing clients may also suffer from linguistic isolation and the inability to receive necessary services in ASL. 

With our Language Access Program, we are able to provide top-notch service with legal & trauma-informed ASL interpreters. We also offer ASL & CDI (Certified Deaf Interpreters) interpretation which proves extremely helpful in numerous situations, particularly in those involving children and/or trauma.

 Ayuda’s Language Access Program trains interpreters to work in legal and victim services to ensure that our clients receive excellent interpretation services. The work of our program also ensures that Limited-English Proficient & Deaf clients can have equal access & support with housing assistance, public benefits, consumer issues, protection orders, family law, counselors, therapists, social workers, and much more.
