A community facilitator typically works for a local community, referring and promoting free or low-cost support services to community families.
Most organizations require a bachelor's degree in social or human services.
Responsibilities include working with families referred from other organizations and connecting them to support resources in the community. This involves developing and maintaining working relationships with family centers and community organizations, as well as enhancing relationships with referral sources and community leaders.
To promote outreach programs, additional responsibilities may include organization of community awareness and fundraising events, as well as participation in local events held by community businesses and organizations.
Many families receive services from other government and human services organizations, but require additional services to continue to improve their situation. A community facilitator ensures they find additional services to promote continual improvement.
In 2014, Indeed listed the average salary of community facilitators as $42,000.
