To better understand what HMRE and RF programs are doing to reach and serve Hispanic families, the authors conducted an extensive review of federally- and non-federally-funded programs serving Hispanic couples and fathers. Based on this review, they developed a program guide summarizing multiple aspects of HMRE and RF programs that target and serve Hispanic populations, including location of the program, target population, and a range of implementation and evaluation factors. This guide is accompanied by detailed profiles for each program listed in the guide, and can be used to easily and quickly access information about HMRE and RF programs serving Hispanics. This guide can also can be used to compare and further categorize programs, for example, to review only those programs that are offered in Spanish. Two categories of programs are included in the guide: (1) programs that serve a Hispanic majority (50 percent or more of the population served is Hispanic), and (2) programs that have a Hispanic presence (at least 20 percent of the population served is Hispanic).
