Child Welfare Vol. 100, NO.4 – Promotion of Latino and Hispanic Child and Family Well-Being


This special issue examines the well-being of Latino and Hispanic children in those families that are the subjects of increased stereotypes, biases, and discrimination affecting Latinx communities and resulting in impediments to their basic human rights. There remains a disproportionate representation of Latino and Hispanic children and youth affected by the social conditions in which they are born, grow, live, work, and age across the United States and Puerto Rico. Contributors discuss the extent to which such conditions and systemic responses affect the entrance into child welfare as well as efforts to promote Latino and Hispanic child well-being.
