Summary:

This position leads practice and program research and analysis, spearheads capacity-building efforts for Home-Based Children/Family Programs, and engages in culturally-specific community engagement in order to advance the YWCA’s mission of Eliminating Racism and Empowering Women. She/He/They will serve as the Coalition Organizer for the YWCA’s Home-Based Children/Family Programs and partnership with King County Best Starts for Kids. This position will work alongside diverse partners and stakeholders to organize a coalition focused on developing and implementing a multi-pronged strategy for community and provider engagement, strategy/program model research, and analysis of best practices to inform the direction and impact of King County home-based services and programs focused on early learning and family well-being.


This position will work closely with the KCHS Director, relevant agency programs, external partners, and community members to lead capacity-building efforts aimed at improving racial equity and other outcomes for home-based services and programs. She/He/They will ensure seamless and integrated execution of the YWCA’s role and goals in capacity-building efforts with county-wide home-based services and programs.
