Immigrant Services

For 24 years, JCS has worked in the community to help underserved immigrant populations access services that enhance their physical and mental well-being. These services have functioned as a safety-net for some immigrants who have limited financial resources and require additional support to help them participate more fully and independently in the community. JCS has changed our services over the years to match the needs of our culturally diverse clients with services that are sensitive to the special needs of these populations.

JCS provides interpretation services that facilitate communication between immigrants and health care providers in order to maximize the potential for achieving better health outcomes.

JCS also provides interpretation and case coordination services to immigrants in order to help them access services and resources in the community.

Document translation is available for Russian, Bulgarian, Hebrew and Indian languages.
