Iowa International Center's Free Emergency Interpretation Services

More articles »

The Iowa International Center offers free interpretation services for emergency situations. These services are offered for limited English proficient (LEP) individuals facing a serious threat to life or well-being, and are accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We accept calls from hospitals, domestic violence shelters and other social service providers when they determine that language is a barrier to providing appropriate services.

This service is the only one of its kind, and is made possible by the generosity of Prairie Meadows, sponsor of the 24/7 Emergency Line. Please note that we will do everything possible to fulfill the requests we receive, but the service does depend on interpreter availability.

To request emergency services, dial 515.282.8269, option 5, and use code 7092. You will be connected with an interpretation service who will work with you on connecting with a professional interpreter.
