Job Title: CCFH FCI Director of Community Partnerships

 CCFH Program: Family Connects International

Location: Durham, NC, USA

Position Type: Full time, Contractor

JOB DESCRIPTION

Reports to: Managing Director, External Relations

The Family Connects model is an evidence-based approach to supporting all newborns and their families. By reaching all families in a community, Family Connects improves health outcomes at the population level.

 

Family Connects International (FCI), the organization that provides the implementation, training and technical support for the Family Connects model, began in 2001 under the leadership of Kenneth Dodge, PhD, with the generous support of the Duke Endowment. Since the first pilot site in Durham, NC, in 2008, the program has expanded to over 40 communities across the nation. FCI is unique from other nurse-home visiting programs for newborns, including those that are universal, because FCI can tailor its evidence-based program, implementation guidance, and policy support to the different contexts of community partners which can potentially lead to a bigger impact for families of newborns as the model is scaled with quality assurance and community accountability

 

FCI will be transitioning its existing administration that is shared between Duke University and the Center for Child and Family Health into a single non-profit entity in the coming months.

 

This role reports to the Managing Director of External Relations and partners with other senior leaders for cross collaborative efforts across business strategy, data analysis and evaluation, training and other matters. This role may also lead or provide support to the Managing Director of External Relations in outreach and relationship cultivation with hospitals and health systems, foundations and others.

 

Occupational Summary:

The Director of Community Partnerships advances the high-quality fidelity and scaling of the Family Connects model through leadership on both the community and state-level. 

 

As the key leader for implementation, this role leads the work of supporting community partners in tailoring their implementation and technical support for scaling of the model in local communities.

To support staff, the Director fosters a collaborative team culture, development and maintenance of efficient and effective processes rooted in implementation science and project management, and data-informed reflective learning for staff and community partners for continuous quality improvement.

 

This position will be fully remote and will be paid as an independent contractor through June 2022.
