Language Line

Using a grant provided by the United Way of the Capital Region, CONTACT received funding to cover the start up costs of using the Language Line.  CONTACT now has access to interpreters of over 150 languages enabling us to better assist our limited English speaking callers.

In addition, the grant provided the money to pay for the translation and printing of the CONTACT Helpline informational brochure and posters in Spanish.
