Abstract

This study investigated the relationship between ethnicity and retention among families participating in a national network of home-based family support programs. Using archival data collected on 224 African American, 227 European American, and 219 Latino American mothers of newborns and 153 home visitors, multivariate analyses indicate greater participation by African American and Latino parents as compared with European American parents. Retention predictors vary by ethnicity. Strategies to form a supportive parent-provider alliance are discussed.
