"We needed to have better conversations with clients and their families to effectively provide the kind of support, education and knowledge that our clients and their families could benefit from. We would not have gotten this kind of expertise and knowledge without a cultural consultant."
"The consultant shared with us about the culture and religious beliefs… was very comfortable sharing the customs. So that helped us understand the population better and feel more comfortable."
