New Website Supports Healthy Marriages
The National Healthy Marriage Resource Center (NHMRC) website has been launched to provide States, Indian tribes, and other grantees with technical assistance and to provide the general public with access to resources for building and sustaining healthy marriages. The online resource center is sponsored by the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in collaboration with six institutions that have played a major role in raising awareness about community efforts and programs that focus on strengthening marriages. These institutions are the University of Minnesota, Syracuse University, Texas Tech University, Brigham Young University, Norfolk State University, and Child Trends research center.
"This online resource center will help millions of Americans who have chosen marriage for themselves gain greater access to information about forming and sustaining a healthy marriage," said HHS Assistant Secretary for Children and Families, Wade F. Horn, Ph.D. "It will help couples interested in marriage education services, educators, practitioners, leaders, organizations, and researchers."
Resources available on the website include laws and policies, research summaries, links to marriage education, and frequently asked questions on a variety of marriage-related topics.
