Hello, my name is Adriana Haynes, I am the Legal Outreach Advocate for the Hispanic Community in Charlottesville, VA. I would like to have more information about this program. I think that the intervention isn’t enough but combine with prevention we will have better results in our communities to end domestic violence.

Thank you and congratulation for what you all are doing.

The Keystone Farmworker Health Program in Pennsylvania has been involved in Hombres Unidas from its initial stage. Like ripples in a pond, many participants have shared what they have learned with their sons, daughters, friends and and other family members. Family bonds have been strengthened as the men learn about the nuances of emotional and financial abuse they may have unwittingly been party to and now vow to change in their relationship with those they cherish most.
