ABSTRACT

This study aims to provide evidence for customized multi-cultural family policies through analyzing factors affecting the welfare needs of immigrants. Hierarchical multiple regression models with four dependent variables are used, based on the following four needs; language education, cultural education, family counseling, and child support and education. Results show that the influence of writing skills on language education needs is greater than the influence of the length of a marriage and speaking skills. On needs for cultural education, writing skills, and speaking skills, along with the length of marriage are most influential. On needs for family counseling, the length of a marriage is most influential. While, the length of marriage, writing skills and household economic status have the most influence on needs for child support and education, the influence of family relationships is weak. The results suggest that programs for writing skills should begin with other language programs, but continue under customized policies in association with cultural education. In addition, it is recommended that the scope of contents for language education expand to culture, family, tradition, and etiquette lessons to induce the early building of solid family relations. Finally, tutors' professionalism through training programs and services for teenage children should be developed to meet the needs for child support and education.
