The Family Connects model is an evidence-based approach to supporting all newborns and their families. By reaching all families in a community, Family Connects improves health outcomes at the population level.

Family Connects International (FCI), the organization that provides the implementation, training, and technical support for the Family Connects model, began in 2001 under the leadership of Kenneth
Dodge, PhD, with the generous support of the Duke Endowment. Since the first pilot site in Durham, NC, in 2008, the program has expanded to over forty communities across the nation. FCI is unique from other nurse-home visiting programs for newborns, including those that are universal, because FCI can tailor its evidence-based program, implementation guidance, and policy support to the
different contexts of community partners which can potentially lead to a bigger impact for families of newborns as the model is scaled with quality assurance and community accountability.

FCI launched as a new business in Fall of 2022 and received its 501c3 status in February of 2022.
