Healthy Marriage Initiative: Building Real Solutions for Real People

About the Course:

In 2002, the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services launched the Healthy Marriage Initiative. Through the initiative, ACF seeks to improve the well-being of children and families already receiving help from other ACF programs, as well as by supporting the development of community-wide initiatives that involve many different types of organizations. The publication upon which this course is based showcases some of the programs that organizations have developed using ACF grants and demonstrates how these programs are helping to create successful marital partnerships. The course materials also provide insight into some of the lessons learned along the way. References are included for those seeking more detailed information.
