A Library for Helping Limited English Speakers

IF CITIES, counties or states are strapped for the resources it takes to offer new or existing services for people who speak limited English, the Migration Policy Institutes's Language Portal holds the key to their problems. It's an online database filled with almost 3,000 documents that state and local agencies have used to helped this often had-to-reach segment of the population.

Users can narrow their search for resources by language, service, issue and state. Over a third of the documents address education - an area where language has emerged as a divisive issue and the one that governments seem to care about most.
