Love INC Impact Stories

Help Despite Language Barrier

Posted by Kelly Voss on

"Emily", an African refugee, was referred to Love INC by another local agency after being released from the hospital. She was a victim of domestic violence and suffered severe injuries from a brutal attack.

As a non-English speaking client, Love INC worked hard, along with the help of other community agencies, to connect with her in her own language and see what needs we could meet.

Emily mentioned she did not have access to healthy food because she left all of her pots & pans behind when she left her previous home in order to be safe from her abuser. Love INC was able to deliver pots, pans, and other essential kitchen items for Emily. She said she's very thankful for a warm meal again and really enjoys having a microwave. It was a blessing to be able to get to know Emily despite our language barrier and help her start her new life!
