Impact statement
This project will save us $7,098 , allowing us to direct funds into the costs of offering quality care and support to guests of the peer respite home.

Project Details

What We Need
  • Specific copy, of up to 1000 words, translated from one language to another of the Organization's choice
Additional Details

Flyer translation from English to Mandarin

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a flyer in English describing our Peer-Run Respite Program, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have an understanding of the target audience, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Please note: This project is for translation from English to Mandarin.

Our new Peer-Run Respite Program offers a no-cost, overnight alternative to hospitalization for adults who feel they are heading toward a mental health crisis. We believe it is important to make information about this resource accessible to people who are in need and that means translating the description into the languages most commonly spoken in our county.

Thank you for considering the gift of your language skills!
