POSITION DESCRIPTION
The position is part of the Successful Families 2020 initiative, which is comprised of six of Multnomah County's leading non profit organizations serving low-income and culturally specific communities. Working in collaboration with United Way, this collaborative is creating a blueprint for success in communities of color in Multnomah County.  Successful Families 2020 defines itself as a community by its  geography, demography, and cultural and social ties serving communities of color, African American, Latino, Native American, Asian and refugee and immigrant families in Multnomah County. Partners share the commitment to break the cycle of childhood poverty and improve educational outcomes. To better align efforts and achieve system change, we believe four new infrastructure systems must be created: 1) a repaired safety net, 2) an integrated pipeline for student success, 3) the ways and means to family economic success, and 4) the rich social fabric of a connected community.
