Krysta Gougler-Reeves, MSW, MPH
North Carolina Manager for Policy & Engagement, Family Connects International
Krysta is the North Carolina Manager for Policy & Engagement. In this role, she leads policy engagement and analysis for NC communities and serves as a resource for technical assistance on early childhood policy related to early intervention and home visiting programs. She’s been with Duke’s Center for Child and Family Policy since 2017 and previously worked to support individuals with developmental disabilities.
At Family Connects International (FCI), our goal is to help serve as a resource as states and communities work to develop and strengthen a comprehensive and connected system of supports for caregivers and children. Our approach to our policy work reflects that goal.
FCI seeks to partner with our fellow advocates and policymakers as a resource where our expertise can contribute to discussion of this system, whether it originates in the maternal and child health sector, the child abuse prevention sector, the early learning sector or another priority area. This means that our policy work is driven by all of the strong policy work that is already happening at state and community levels — the great work that so many agencies, states and individuals are engaged in doing. FCI looks at ways in which we might further strengthen or enhance this work. We seek to complement existing services, partner with existing agencies, and fill gaps in a comprehensive system of care. We want to share what we’ve learned and we want to learn from our partners.
At FCI, we care about what is best for families and communities. We care about families getting the services and supports that they want and need.
