Hispanic Healthy Marriage & Responsible Fatherhood Strengthening Families Forum
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Region IV, hosted an Hispanic Healthy Marriage & Responsible Fatherhood Strengthening Families Forum: A Conversation: Connecting, Educating and Networking with Communities. This Forum was designed specifically for faith and community-based organizations, healthy marriage community coalitions, colleges and universities, healthy marriage and fatherhood grantees, public and private organizations, Head Start and Community Action Agencies, State and local human service agencies, and practitioners from various disciplines. Approximately 30 people attended and participated in this Forum held on May 21-22, 2013 at the University of Miami Alumni Center, 6200 San Amaro Drive, Coral Gables, FL 33146.
The objective of the Forum was to explore emerging research on the Hispanic family experience, and to discuss the implications of the research for sustaining and strengthening Hispanic families, marriages and promoting responsible fatherhood. This event also provided invitees with unique opportunities to exchange views and share information around critical issues affecting families and communities, focusing on healthy relationships and responsible fatherhood. A resource area was provided and ACF as well as other participating agencies distributed handouts for attendees.
