A STORY FROM OUR AGENCY: 

Children and families impacted by child abuse deserve compassionate and high quality services, no matter what language they speak. With a growing number of children and families who speak other languages all across Nebraska, child advocacy centers and their partners have been challenged to ensure that a language barrier is not an obstacle to safety, healing, and justice for children and families.

This year, the Nebraska Alliance provided technology in three locations across the state to ensure child advocacy centers could access translators for over 250 languages, as well as services for those who are deaf or hard of hearing with the push of a button.

Access to MARTTI carts has already made a difference. A child and family impacted by possible abduction and sexual assault spoke Quiche. Instead of a complicated search for a translator or communicating in a second language, a high quality investigation occurred immediately occurred. The family was also able to receive needed services and fully understand their options.

Support for the Nebraska Alliance helps bring vital resources to responders to child abuse, and most importantly the children and families themselves. With your help, we can ensure that every child in Nebraska impacted by abuse can get what they need to find safety, healing, and justice.
