I have had the opportunity to work in Friends of Yates for over a year now as a Spanish interpreter and translator. In this time I have had the opportunity to learn about the vital role which this organization has had in this community for many years. The fact that the organization has sought to have someone like me come on board reflects their desire to continously reach out to help people from many different backgrounds, in my case working directly with Spanish-speakers.
