When it comes to serving communities, one size does not fit all

Evidence-based programs that work well in predominantly white communities can fail to deliver the same results for communities of color. One potential factor at play? Culture. Understanding a community’s unique ethnic culture and incorporating this knowledge into an evidence-based program can support both the program’s uptake and its long-term success.
