Found in Translation is a non-profit that offers a free medical interpreting certificate program to low-income bilingual women, empowering them to employ their language skills to achieve economic security. In the Class of 2017, we trained 35 women who spoke collectively 20 different languages. 45% of the women were single mothers and 60% of them were or have been homeless. For more information, please check out our website at
