ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Global VRS/ASL Services Holdings, LLC, headquartered in Kissimmee, FL, announces the opening of their newest interpreting center in Long Beach, California (The Long Beach Interpreting Center [LBIC]). Formally known as Gracias VRS, Global VRS has led the industry in providing video relay services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (D/HH) while accommodating for communication differences related to culture, language, and other unique needs of the D/HH community.
The Long Beach Interpreting Center will provide additional services for the thousands of D/HH consumers who use Global VRS' interpreter services to make phone calls every day. Gabrielle Joseph, Global VRS' VP of operations, states, "While our expansion into another west-coast call center is a testament to the increasing community use of Global VRS' caller friendly and community-minded VRS calls, we are not stopping with LBIC. We have an incredible need for our unique diversity sensitive services that we are continuing to fill," as she describes Global VRS' plans to open yet another interpreting center in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico.
The pending opening Rio Piedras Interpreting Center will be housed near the vibrant metro-area of San Juan, Puerto Rico. "This will allow us not only the opportunity to bring more jobs to the community of Puerto Rico, but it will also afford us the unique ability to recruit additional linguistically diverse interpreters, who will be able to provide interpretation services to Latino/Latino D/HH consumers situated here in the USA that come from around the world," explains Gabrielle Joseph.
Angela Roth, president and CEO, describes that it is this kind of innovative thinking to provide services in recognition and respect for the entire range of the Deaf community communication needs that has allowed Global VRS to provide much needed services to an underserved population. She adds, "It is exciting to see growth of Global VRS' advances in its technological and video interpreting services in a challenging industry of video relay services for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. Global VRS, one of the fastest-growing providers in the video relay service industry, seems to be making quite a bit of headway in the closing months of 2015 and encourages all to stay tuned, as we await what is likely to be continued growth in the coming year."
