Hispanics Against Child Abuse and Neglect
Strong Families, Strong Communities

Fortaleciendo la Familia (trans. Strengthening the Family) is a Spanish-language parenting curriculum developed for immigrant families that HACAN has successfully taught for seventeen years to nearly 2,000 parents. It is based on the premise that child abuse and neglect can be prevented by providing parents with the skills needed to resolve family conflicts in an atmosphere of mutual respect, cooperation, love and understanding. In addition, HACAN offers trainer certification to individuals from other local agencies that have experience working with low-income, Latino families.
