Free 24/7 Interpretation Hotline
The Free 24/7 Interpretation Hotline offers free interpretation in over 160 languages in times of a crisis or housing issue. This can be used by emergency responders (EMT, Firefighters, police, ER, etc) or my property managers/landlords.

Local interpreters can be requested for phone, virtual, or in person (within 20-mile radius of Des Moines Metro.)
