Language Access Metro Project (LAMP) decreases linguistic and cultural barriers for immigrants, refugees, and the deaf and hard of hearing seeking health care and support services in the St. Louis Metropolitan area.
Foreign Language Interpreters
Since 1997 LAMP has provided interpretation and written professional translation services in the Saint Louis region. Our interpreters are tested and trained extensively to follow the National Council of Interpreting in Health Care (NCIHC) Code of Ethics and National Standards of Practice. Our agency is the only licensed provider in the St. Louis area for the nationally recognized Bridging the Gap training. Our expertise is in the healthcare industry providing on-site, telephonic, and video interpretation.
LAMP also provides services in other areas such as: mental health, legal and courts, schools and social services. We can also translate documents for healthcare and medical facilities, legal firms, academic arenas, corporations, insurance companies and worker's compensation.
In February of 1996, the Archbishop's Commission on Community Health (ACCH) conducted a Community Health Assessment which identified immigrants and refugees as one of four populations facing barriers to care. Individuals and organizations that assist immigrant and refugee communities came together to reduce language and cultural barriers to health and social services. The result of this collaborative effort is LAMP, an agency of Catholic Family Services.
