Community Connector

COMMUNITY CONNECTOR

The Community Connector is a 3-year pilot that aims to launch in early 2022. 

The project was conceptualized in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis of spring 2020. During the crisis, leaders of nonprofit organizations in the Greater Attleboro area came together to form the Stronger Together Fund. The organizations discovered that they were able to make a more immediate, efficient, and impactful response to the crisis by collaborating. 

Based on the success of that collaboration, the Stronger Together Alliance recognized that greater opportunities exist for deeper collaboration and increased efficiencies across the nonprofit sector in the Greater Attleboro region. However, for this exceptional collaborative approach to problem-solving to continue, a formal, paid position would be necessary.

The Community Connector position aims to deepen the connection between organizations. The Community Connector’s main objectives include:

  • Support and encourage the collaboration of area social service agencies by staying current and knowledgeable about the service provision and project goals of each agency, and by reporting back synergies and potential partnerships to the agencies regularly
  • Lead Foundation/Governmental Grant funding opportunities that would benefit multiple agencies
  • Serve as a technical coach and advisor to agency leadership as needed
  • Interface with municipal leadership around advocacy and support.
  • Identify duplication of services and work to streamline services across agencies.

There will be a collaborative supervisory structure in place to ensure the position is supported and supervised appropriately, and that position duties and responsibilities are being met.
