We provide services in Khmer!

The Khmer Linguistic Access Program is a project that aims to address the many barriers that Khmer victims of sexual assault, domestic violence, human trafficking, elder abuse and other crimes face when receiving services.

The Center for Hope and Healing, Inc. (CHH) is working in partnership with the Cambodian American Literary Arts Association (CALAA) and Northeast Legal Aid (NLA) to develop multi-organizational capacity to provide victim-centered, trauma-informed and linguistically specific services to Khmer-speaking victims of crime in Lowell, MA.

We invite you to check out the KLAP impact report:
