April 2007Vol. 8, No. 3Healthy Marriage Resource Center

The National Healthy Marriage Resource Center (NHMRC) is an information source and clearinghouse that makes resources available to individuals, couples, educators, policymakers, researchers, and organizational leaders with an interest in marriage. NHMRC offers marriage and family trends and statistics, marriage education and programming, training and technical assistance for Healthy Marriage Initiative grantees, and scholarly research.

NHMRC is administered under a cooperative agreement with the Office of Family Assistance within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Administration for Children and Families (ACF). Its principal mission is to support ACF in furthering its commitment to promoting and supporting healthy marriages and child well-being by providing key audiences with research and program information and generating new knowledge about promising and effective strategies.

ACF has expanded its Healthy Marriage Initiative efforts with special resources that provide culturally relevant information for selected ethnic groups.
