1   Link   January 2014 | Department of Health and Human Services Congratulates La Alianza Hispana for Its participation on the Teen Health Empowerment Study
Congratulations on successfully completing enrollment for the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Replication Study (Teen Health Empowerment Study), funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Because of the hard work and dedication of La Alianza Hispana staff over the past two years, your organization has not only provided the Cuidate! teen pregnancy and STI prevention program to young people locally, but also made a valuable contribution to the national knowledge base about the implementation and effectiveness of programs for youth around the country.

La Alianza Hispana, a Roxbury, Massachusetts-based nonprofit serving the Latino community, chose Cuidate as its EBP because the agency was already delivering the six-session intervention and had experienced facilitators on staff. As implementation began, this presumed asset began to melt away. “Before we got the grant, we had five facilitators doing Cuidate, and each was doing it their own way,” explained Program Director Lily Rivera. “People were picking out and doing the things that they liked. The OAH performance measures, observation requirements, and evaluations all have led us to have much more fidelity in how we do this. We no longer skip session six because two kids once got into a fight.” But doing Cuidate by the book was not easy for the experienced facilitators. “We had some very educated facilitators who couldn’t get their heads around this,” Rivera said. “Staff were coming and going. But we had to get the right staff. I e nded up going to a probationary period of 90 days, so I could confirm that the people I hired and trained would follow through.”
