LEP Access Collaborates with Health Department, Masks and Multilinqual Flyers Available for Pickup

MICAH's Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Access Working Group began collaborating with the Shelby County Health Department to distribute reusable face masks to LEP communities, along with with a multilingual flyer (English, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Arabic).  The Health Department still has a supply of free fabric masks  available, in sets of 24 or boxes of 360.


To request masks for your group and arrange for a pickup, contact Shelia Cruthird at, or call (901) 222-9059. Be sure to mention that you learned about this partnership with MICAH, and request copies of the multilingual flyer if your community needs them! If you have questions, feel free to contact Gisela at
