TLC recently helped the Tennessee Justice Center with a translation project. The Tennessee Justice Center is a nonprofit that helps families and individuals in marginalized communities navigate public benefits programs to get vital services such as health coverage, long-term supports and services, and food assistance. TLC translated a flyer and a postcard that summarize the health care and nutrition supports that are available to inform people who may not be aware of the programs and are newly eligible due to the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic into Spanish, Arabic, and Somali. The translation of these documents will greatly increase the number of people who will have access to the information they contain concerning TennCare, CoverKids, SNAP, WIC, and Pandemic-EBT.
