We are looking for volunteers to provide Spanish interpretation during meetings with clients, along with paralegal support on immigration cases. Our cases involve domestic violence, sexual trauma and human trafficking so it is essential for volunteers to be empathetic and comfortable when clients express strong emotions. The staff is a warm and welcoming. Volunteers may be asked to consent to a background check, and will be asked to sign a confidentiality agreement.
