VHIO strives to eliminate language barriers in healthcare settings by providing trained volunteer interpreters from UC Berkeley to healthcare organizations and facilities for underserved, limited English proficient (LEP) communities in the Bay Area.

Currently, we have official training and established volunteering opportunities for Cantonese, Mandarin, Khmer, Korean, Spanish, Tagalog, and Vietnamese interpreters. In our goal to reach out to more populations, we welcome speakers of other languages to help us expand our language capacities.
