Abstract There are some indications that Hispanics, the fastest growing population in the United States, are at risk for negative family outcomes, but few family-strengthening programs have been adapted to address their distinct cultural needs. The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE), within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), funded the Hispanic Healthy Marriage Initiative (HHMI) Grantee Implementation Evaluation to examine ways in which nine federally-funded healthy marriage grantees have developed and adapted culturally relevant and appropriate programs to strengthen Hispanic marital and family relationships. This fifth brief describes the adaptations and refinements undertaken by the grantees to make their services more culturally responsive. The adaptations include addressing issues of language, diversity, racism, and immigration, and incorporating cultural constructs like familismo, confianza, personalismo, and respeto.
