Background/ Objectives: This study was conducted to identify the structural relationships between acculturative stress, family-related stress, hope, and well-being in 609 immigrant women in 10 cities and provinces. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: The study conducted frequency analysis, reliability analysis, correlation analysis, structural equation modeling, and bootstrapping. Findings: First, acculturative stress had a negative correlation with family-related stress and also with the positive factor of well-being. In contrast, it had a positive correlation with the negative factor of well-being. Hope had a positive correlation with the positive factor of well-being but a negative correlation with the negative factor of well-being. Second, acculturative stress had a significant negative impact on hope and well-being, as did family-related stress. Hope had a statistically significant positive impact on well-being. Third, it was confirmed that hope was a mediating variable in the relationship between immigrant women’s family-related stress and their well-being. Application/ Improvement: This study will be applicable for increasing the wellbeing of immigrant people.
