Cultural Awareness Tools

The Cultural Awareness, Respect, and Engagement (C.A.R.E.) Toolkit was developed to assist home visitors to engage and serve diverse populations and improve practice in cross cultural settings. Toolkit materials demonstrate the importance of understanding culture and its impact on practice. Materials were developed in partnership with the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting and Project LAUNCH programs and the University of Kansas Center for Public Partnerships and Research (KU-CPPR). This multimedia toolkit features a variety of resources to assist you in serving diverse populations everywhere.
