The Foundling: American Sign Language Interpreters (Chelsea)

Do you know American Sign Language? Are you learning American Sign Language? We can use your help as an interpreter for our Deaf Services!
The NY Foundling provides services for deaf children and adults. The Foundling works to keep children out of foster care by strengthening the family system and mobilizing outside influencers for support. Caseworkers meet with families in their homes at least twice per month, motivating caregivers and children to believe that improvement is possible.
This is a great opportunity for anyone who can sign (including those learning to sign or working to become interpreters)! 
Volunteers will be asked to assist caseworkers with clients.
Volunteers will be asked to complete a background and medical check.

The NY Foundling was founded in 1869 as a home for abandoned children, The Foundling today offers an expansive array of services for underserved children, families, and adults with developmental disabilities. Whether it’s an abused child in need of a foster home, a young mother who lacks the skills to care for her child, or a young person lost in the juvenile justice system, The Foundling provides the resources necessary to rebuild lives and rebuild families.
