Immigrant Families
Immigrant families are likely to have two parents in the home, strong work ethics, deep connections to their communities and extended families and high expectations for their children.[1] Despite these strengths, many immigrant families are dealing with additional stressors, such as dislocation to a new environment and culture, limited education or job skills, lack of access to adequate healthcare, long work hours and discrimination and hostility in their new communities.
