The successful candidate will be the face of the organization and will bring strategies and the knowledge to improve and transform the lives of children through advocacy and research. Joan Benso will be retiring in December 2018 after 23 years as President and CEO. She has been an outstanding and fervent advocate for children’s issues across the state. The Organization Founded in 1990, Pennsylvania Partnerships for Children (PPC) is the only statewide advocacy organization with a public policy agenda that spans the life of a child from birth to adulthood. Its mission is to be a strong, effective and trusted voice to improve the health, education and well-being of children and youth in the Commonwealth. As a statewide, independent, and non-partisan nonprofit, PPC’s vision is to make Pennsylvania one of the top 10 states to be a child and to raise a child. Currently, Pennsylvania is ranked 18th in the nation for child well-being. PPC focuses on four issues areas to advance the well-being of children: • Child Welfare: Working to implement effective public policy changes that better protect children from abuse and neglect, improve the lives of children in foster care, and help ensure a “forever family” for every child. • Early Learning: Working to ensure that all children enter school ready to succeed through high-quality child care, pre-kindergarten, and home visiting programs. • Health Care: Working to reduce the number of uninsured children in Pennsylvania and ensure that all children in the state have health care that meets their needs. • K-12 Education: Working to ensure that all students are afforded a high-quality public education through equitable and adequate funding and consistent and transparent accountability standards. PPC advances its policy agendas through four main strategies including: • Research and data analysis that involves collecting, monitoring, and analyzing child program, well-being and fiscal data; monitoring and analyzing evidence-based and promising program practices; and using data and research findings to inform other PPC strategies. • Strategic communications that involves producing and disseminating materials (issue briefs, fact sheets, newsletters, talking points, donor relations tools, etc.); engaging in social media; conducting media outreach (press pitches, op-eds, editorial board meetings, radio and TV appearances, etc.); and making presentations. • Mobilization that involves building, staffing and participating in issue-based advocacy coalitions; educating and engaging key influencers (grasstops) targeting issue-based stakeholders; and building and mobilizing a statewide e-advocacy network. • Government Relations that involves developing and maintaining strong relationships with state and federal policymakers and key staff; educating and influencing targeted state and federal policymakers and key staff; and recognizing policymaker champions. Major Accomplishments As Pennsylvania’s KIDS COUNT partner, PPC is widely considered the go-to organization for data on Pennsylvania’s children. PPC also has a long track record of building strong and diverse coalitions and elevating the voices of non-traditional supporters as champions for children. In addition, PPC has led or shared leadership for coalitions that have accomplished the following: • Enactment of the Pennsylvania Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) –that has served as a national model and preserved and protected both CHIP and Medicaid to ensure children’s health. • Creation of Pre-K Counts – the state’s high-quality pre-kindergarten program as well as state funding for Head Start to ensure school readiness. • Enactment of a new public school funding formula –when fully implemented, the formula will result in every Pennsylvania child attending a public school that is adequately and equitably funded. • Passage of more than two dozen laws to reform the child welfare system – to better protect the safety, well-being and rights of children experiencing the foster care system. PPC is governed by a 25-member board of directors. The organization’s current budget is approximately $1.53 M. Current staffing includes 10 staff, with a Senior Leadership Team of 3 (which includes the VP of Public Policy and the KIDS COUNT/Research Director). Leadership Outlook and Near-Term Organizational Priorities In the next few years, PPC will: • Seek to expand access to evidence-based home visiting, high-quality child care and pre-kindergarten for at-risk children and families. • Focus on building additional supports for both informal kinship caregivers and kinship foster families so that they can successfully raise the children in their care. • Expand its health care policy work beyond coverage to an agenda that ensures children can live healthy lives and access the health care services they need. • Ensure, through K-12 education efforts, that every child can attend a local public school that has adequate and equitable funds to support basic, career and technical education. Using data and research evidence, PPC will continue to serve as a coalition leader and convener; use an array of communications strategies to increase engagement and understanding; and partner with bi-partisan policymakers in Harrisburg and Washington, DC to advance public policies and financing to support the comprehensive needs of at-risk Pennsylvania children.
