Catholic Charities’ Language Partners can take the guesswork out of translation and interpreter services.

Our linguists have experience working with many of Maine’s leading names in the medical, legal, social services, and corporate fields. Whatever your needs, from on-site interpreter visits to translation jobs of dozens of documents in multiple languages, we will develop a custom-tailored language services package that best suits your needs.

Mentoring Programs

American Friends Program
The American Friends program matches English-speaking families or individuals with recently arrived refugee families to provide them with support to educate, orient, and integrate New Mainers into the community. We match refugees with community volunteers with similar interests and schedules. Refugee families need a friend who will give them encouragement, will take the time to explain the language and way of life, will understand and listen. Learn More


RIS Mentoring Program
The RIS Mentoring program matches refugee and asylee young adults (ages 18-30) with volunteer mentors to support their efforts to reach their personal, academic, and career goals. Adult volunteers commit to supporting, guiding, and being a friend to a young adult refugee or asylee for two hours a week for six months to one year. Learn More
