The St. Joseph Community Health Foundation has awarded a $54,000 grant to the Fort Wayne-Allen County Department of Health.

The grant dollars will be used to pay two part-time interpreters to help refugees. Last year, the clinic saw an increase in Cuban and Haitian resettlement program clients.

There was also a change in refugee populations from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq and Iran.

The interpreters speak Burmese and will help with medical and environmental services.
