This study identified the adaptations and refinements undertaken by Hispanic healthy Marriage Initiative 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.
Making appropriate program adaptations to address the backgrounds and life circumstances of people of different cultural, racial, ethnic, or socio-economic backgrounds may improve the recruitment, retention, overall participation, and effectiveness of the programs.
