August 2007Vol. 8, No. 7Healthy Marriage Initiative Newsletters
The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) Healthy Marriage Initiative helps couples who have chosen marriage gain greater access to marriage education services. The Hispanic Healthy Marriage Initiative (HHMI) and the African American Healthy Marriage Initiative (AAHMI) promote culturally competent strategies for fostering healthy marriages within these communities.
Several recent HHMI and AAHMI newsletters highlight State and local healthy marriage programs. Information is included on the "Partners for Life" program in El Paso, TX, and the "Basic Training for Couples" course in Washington, DC. Both are marriage education programs organized by ACF grantees that provide a series of trainings for couples on topics such as communication, finances, and parenting.
