If you need an interpreter, ask for one. You can say,
“I speak __________. I need an interpreter.” Or, you can show the program staff a flier in Spanish, Portuguese, or Haitian Creole to ask for help. Or, use this poster to show the staff the language you speak. They should give you a free interpreter.
They must not:
- Make you pay for an interpreter,
- Ask you to bring your own interpreter, or
- Send you away because you do not speak English. They must help you the same day.
