DCF: Division of Multicultural Affairs

Division of Multicultural Affairs

{Bill Rivera}

A Message From William Rivera, Director

The demands for the development of culturally and linguistically competent services is a major challenge facing human services and behavioral health providers today. The shifts in racial, ethnic, linguistic, religious, special needs, disability, and gender orientation diversity have required that the Department of Children and Families discover approaches and skills that will enable us to effectively work with people from diverse backgrounds.

The Division of Multicultural Affairs was created for the purpose of developing, implementing, and sustaining diversity initiatives and policies designed to support the diverse needs of staff and clients regardless of their race, religion, color, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, social economic status, or language.
