Catastrophic Need Fund

This fund was established under SCRID with the goal of supporting interpreters during difficult times.

Over the years, SCRID has seen several of our own interpreters come upon hard times. Some from accidents, some from illness, but all “catastrophic” financially. It is especially difficult for freelance interpreters, whether part-time or full-time, who typically do not receive sick pay or worker’s compensation benefits.

In order to address these unfortunate and unforeseeable situations and to be able to assist SCRID members in need in some small measure, SCRID has established a fund whereby interpreters in serious need may request and receive, as available, financial assistance.

Fund is open for donation and application. For more information, click here.

Southern California Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (SCRID) is committed to promoting communication accessibility for Deaf community members during the coronavirus pandemic. Due to the varied linguistic needs of deaf individuals, we recognize that the unique and native skills afforded by qualified Deaf interpreters allow greater informational access to the Deaf communities at large. As such, SCRID encourages the use and uninterrupted visibility of qualified Deaf interpreters at any and all venues announcing vital health and/or emergency information to the public.
