Cross-Cultural Interpreting Services Bridging Cultural and Communication Gaps
CCIS, a program of Heartland Alliance for Human Needs & Human Rights, was established in 1996 to improve access to services for the Limited-English-Proficiency (LEP) client. CCIS was the first program of its kind in Illinois to recruit, assess language skills, and train in the medical interpreting field. We have earned a well respected reputation throughout Metropolitan Chicago for providing outstanding health care interpreting and document translation services.
Heartland Alliance believes that all of us deserve the opportunity to improve our lives. Each year, we help ensure this opportunity for more than one million people around the world who are homeless, living in poverty, or seeking safety. Our policy efforts strengthen communities; our comprehensive services empower those we serve to rebuild and transform their lives.
