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] Immigrant families are diverse and bring a variety of experiences and cultures to the program. Some families may be dealing with additional stressors, such as adjusting to a new environment and culture, discrimination, and hostility in their new communities.
