LFW supports each of our grantees in several ways beyond the financial aspect of our grants. Today, we are sharing information about Cyracom, a language interpretation service. Cyracom includes telephone and video interpreter services available in hundreds of languages 24/7, 365 days a year. At LFW, we believe that grantees need access to language interpretation to ensure justice for all. Check out how our grantees have used this service over the last couple of years! #supportbeyondthecheck
