Building Community Collaboration in Alabama: The Healthy Couples, Healthy Children Project (Workshop 28)
This workshop provides information on Alabama's "lessons learned" in launching a coordinated, documented, research-based effort to provide couple and family strengthening programs to diverse populations. The session offers programmatic suggestions and methods for gathering community support and involving multiple agencies and organizations, discusses the fundamentals of establishing and utilizing state support for grassroots efforts, and reviews the process of program selection and development. Most notably, the presenters describe efforts to address the needs of remarrying couples with the development of the "Smart Steps for Remarriages" program.
