Effective and caring communication is a necessary foundation for the success for any nonprofit organization. Funders, community leaders, and other stakeholders take notice when you use language resources to offer access to information, events, and services to the non-English speakers in your community. Moreover, people from different cultures have the power to bring new energy and ideas to your organization.
As a service-based organization with strong ties to local, national, and international nonprofit organizations, LUNA helps to bridge the communication gap with language services in American Sign Language (ASL) and over 200 spoken languages, including rare languages (languages of lesser diffusion). We assure qualified language providers to help you connect with the community you serve. In addition to providing interpreting, translation, and cultural training, we’re experienced at collaborating on grants to extend projects into the community to Deaf, hard of hearing, and the limited English proficient (LEP) population. In line with our commitment to working with and supporting nonprofits, we offer special discount rates to qualifying not-for-profit and charitable organizations.
