Volunteer Bilingual Interpreter (Spanish- English)

Administer Justice

  • 34 people are interested

Our clients come to us because they have a civil, legal matter for which they need guidance and possibly representation in court. Some are spouses needing to escape the abuse of their partner. Some are single parents unable to support their children because their spouse walked away from their responsibility. Without our services, many would do nothing about their situation (which could ultimately take a relatively simple problem and turn it into a major and complex issue), or they would attempt to represent themselves in court with little chance of success in our complex system of laws.

Over half of our clients are Spanish speaking and daily we receive over 150 calls (both English and Spanish). We are looking for a reliable volunteer bilingual interpreter to assist us with attorney client appointments, specifically on Tuesdays. Hours: Minimum 2 hours, from 9am-4:00 pm. Other days to serve are an option as well.

We graciously appreciate any time and assistance you're willing to give!
