Toolkit Helps Providers Better Serve Latino Families, Couples

The National Resource Center for Healthy Marriage and Families, a service of the Office of Family Assistance, has released Working with Latino Individuals, Couples, and Families: A Toolkit for Stakeholders (PDF, 18 MB) to help stakeholders—including administrators, supervisors, and safety-net service providers—around the country better serve Latino families, couples, and individuals. The toolkit will help service providers with cultural competence and covers important topics in the research literature with input from experts in the field. Each chapter highlights program development and implementation recommendations, including case studies with discussion questions.

ACF's Healthy Marriage Initiative supports programs that offer healthy marriage and relationship education skills as part of a comprehensive, culturally appropriate, family-centered approach to promote self-sufficiency.
