This handbook was designed to be a self-guided complete tool to help a community (geographic or social) assess the flow of money. It is very extensive step-by-step how to guide. Melissa Huber who prepared this for us is still in the area and "may" be available if you had some interest in connecting with her to apply this with the Latino business community.

All of the results from the 2012 HBRFS presented within this report have been weighted as described in the methods section at the end of the report and can be interpreted as prevalence estimates among the Hispanic adult population in Michigan. Differences in demographic characteristics can directly and indirectly influence the prevalence of certain health conditions and related risk factors and are important to consider. Nationwide, the Hispanic population is younger and of lower socioeconomic status compared to non-Hispanic Whites and a similar pattern was found statewide in the 2012 HBRFS.
Planning and implementing an initiative to support the pathway to graduation for at-risk students
One-fourth of all ninth graders in the United States will not graduate from high school within four years, despite the fact that the 21st Century workplace requires more advanced knowledge and skills than ever before. Recognizing the need for a comprehensive strategy to keep teens in school and ensure that they graduate prepared for the future, AT&T awarded United Way Worldwide a contribution to start a new initiative – Family Engagement for High School Success (FEHS). This AT&T-supported initiative offered an invaluable opportunity to pioneer strategies for bringing families, school leaders, community partners, and students together to build a network of supports to keep students on the path to high school graduation, college or advanced training, and successful lives beyond.
