Language Services

At Ayuda, we work to make sure that everyone can get help when they need it, regardless of the languages that they use to communicate.

We partner with and work for a wide array of clients, non-profit organizations, legal and social professionals, and more. Use one of the links below to learn about our language access services, our partnerships, and our opportunities. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].

Ayuda is grateful to have received a Community Partnership Grant from Prince George’s County to ensure that limited English proficient and Deaf county residents have equal access to legal services.

Language Access Satisfaction Survey for Clients

As part of our ongoing efforts to monitor and improve the quality of our services, we are collecting anonymous feedback from clients who have received interpretation services through our program. Clients who have received interpretation services through Ayuda should complete the survey at the link below. The survey is anonymous, and with the feedback we will be able to monitor the quality of our services and ensure that all clients receive the best possible service. 

Legal and victim service providers who have feedback on interpretation services provided by Ayuda should not complete this survey but should instead email their feedback to [email protected].
