Kreyol Lekol Program

The Kreyol Lekol Program is an excellent educational program that bridges the gap between the Haitian/Creole and American cultures. This is done by providing beneficial instructional services to assist the Haitian population while maintain cultural sensitivity.

The Kreyol Lekol Program provides language interpretations for our clients that have difficulty speaking and understanding the English language. Some of the assessments include Medical Histories/Physicals, Bio-Psychosocials, Needs Assessments, Psychiatric Evaluations, and Comprehensive Behavioral Health Assessments.

In addition, our program provides Haitian/Creole-instructional courses for clients that require Parenting and Anger Management classes. We believe that our clients retain more information when they are educated in their natural language.

 

As well as provide transcription of documents from English to Creole and vice versa.
