Housing Clinic presented in Amharic
April 14, 2015 by BFC in Housing Social Services
Good News! Bread for the City has launched a monthly Housing Clinic that is presented entirely in Amharic.
This session takes place on the last Friday of every month at 9:00 a.m. at our Northwest Center. Interested clients should contact our Amharic speaking case manager, Wondimu Geda, to sign up.
As with all other Housing Access Program (HAP) participants, Amharic speaking clients are required to have completed a general intake before the Housing Clinic. Wondimu has placed some signs (in both English and Amharic) around the NW center advertising this, and also plans to post notices elsewhere in the community.
Wondimu has done a fantastic job of translating all of our forms and presentations in the English HAP sessions, and in creating accurate and culturally appropriate documents.
We have had two of these sessions already and they have been very successful. A few participants who also speak English had attended a session in English, but report that they got so much more out of it after hearing it in their native language.
Way to go, Wondimu!
