Community Language Services for Cambridge Housing Authority
July 2017, Boston MA – Language Connections, a Boston interpretation and translation services provider, works regularly with various local community and municipal organizations to provide linguistic services for individuals with Limited English Proficiency (LEP).
A local organization, the Cambridge Housing Authority (CHA), frequently requests our interpreting services for their member meetings, as well as community related translation services for the information on their website designed to assist the families and individuals in the communities that they serve.
What Is The Cambridge Housing Authority?
The CHA provides long-term rental housing and assistance to over 5,500 low-income families and individuals through its Public Housing Programs. It is one of only 39 public housing agencies (PHAs) chosen to participate in the U.S. HUD’s Moving to Work Demonstration Program. This program allows PHAs to adopt a wide range of new policies that would not otherwise be possible under the standard rules governing assisted housing programs. We are proud to participate in their efforts by helping them overcome language barriers with the largely immigrant communities they serve.
Multilingual Community Language Services for Cambridge Outreach
Language Connections has provided CHA with a variety of community translation services for outreach materials over the last few months. These included newsletters, community meeting handouts, and relevant written notices such as the nomination of the CHA Tenant Council.
We also provided translations of updates on the organization’s website. The most commonly requested languages which we are asked to translate are from English to Chinese, Amharic, Haitian Creole and Spanish (for Latin American audiences). These languages are representative of the community demographics of the Cambridge-Boston area.
We are happy to have continued our partnership with CHA over the past few years, and look forward to helping ease communication between them and those in the communities they serve in the future.
