Family Advocate

The Birth through Eight Strategy for Tulsa (BEST) represents an exciting opportunity for Tulsa. BEST is a comprehensive, continuous and integrated approach that focuses on families to help break the cycle of intergenerational poverty. This strategy knits together programs and services to create a seamless continuum of support. Programs, services, community agencies and philanthropies are partnering with Tulsa’s families to build a cycle of opportunity.


The Family Advocate will play a key role in advancing the goals of BEST and realizing the potential of the strategy for children and families. Family Advocates will provide personalized, ongoing support to connect families to desired programs and services and to share information about how families can support their young child’s brain development. Together with other BEST implementing partners, the Family Advocate will impact thousands of children across the county and country, as other communities draw from and replicate the model.
In the initial stage of navigation, the Family Advocate will manage a monthly caseload and will be primarily responsible for contacting pregnant women recently enrolled in SoonerCare to promote awareness of and enrollment in, prenatal and postpartum home visitation services and early childhood programs and services. The Family Advocate will engage expectant mothers, parents and caregivers, develop trusting relationships, and ensure that parents and children are connected to relevant and appropriate resources. As BEST grows, Family Advocates will have the opportunity to support parents and caregivers at later phases along the birth through age eight continuum.

Navigator

The Accountable Health Community (AHC) represents an exciting opportunity for Tulsa. Funded through Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the goal of this innovative model of care is for social needs, not just medical needs, to be addressed in order to improve health outcomes and reduce health care costs. Through the Route 66 AHC, Oklahomans will be screened for social needs in five key areas: housing insecurity, food insecurity, utility assistance, interpersonal violence and transportation. Individuals and families in need will be connected to social service agencies through a coordinated navigation service.

The Navigator will connect individuals to programs in the community that promote, maintain, and improve individual and community health as outlined by Accountable Health Community. The Navigator will provide information on available resources and advocate for individuals and community health needs. The Navigator will work closely with Birth through Eight Strategy for Tulsa (BEST) Family Advocates in navigating and identifying appropriate early childhood and parent engagement programs and services for families and children birth through age eight.
