Hispanic Healthy Marriage Initiative
The focus of this initiative is to help Hispanic couples to gain access to marriage education services, so that they can acquire the skills and knowledge necessary to form and sustain a healthy marriage for the overall well-being of their children. This Program is in response to the National Hispanic Healthy Marriage Initiative, and the couple's participation is entirely voluntary.
