Addressing Domestic Violence in Hispanic Healthy Relationship Programs
The Hispanic Healthy Marriage Initiative (HHMI) Grantee Implementation Evaluation (2007 to 2013) project provided a comprehensive process and output evaluation of selected ACF Healthy Marriage grantees that serve Hispanic families, addressing a key programmatic question of the HHMI: How are healthy marriage programs being implemented in order to provide services for Hispanic families? The implementation analysis revealed lessons learned that may offer assistance to other sites wishing to provide healthy marriage education services to Hispanic populations.
Addressing Domestic Violence in Hispanic Healthy Relationship Programs describes how study sites addressed domestic violence in the family strengthening and relationship education services they provided. The major finding of the study is that programs treated domestic violence with requisite seriousness and expressed concern about the prevalence and effects of domestic violence in their communities.
