Nashville Children's Alliance


Job Summary


Nashville Children’s Alliance (NCA) is the child advocacy center for Nashville and Davidson County. NCA serves all children in Davidson County aged 3 – 17 when sexual or severe physical abuse allegations are reported, with the majority of referrals coming from the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (DCS) and the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD). NCA is a child-focused, trauma-informed therapeutic environment designed to meet the needs of child abuse victims and their non-offending family members. NCA is involved in child sexual and severe physical abuse cases from the first allegation of abuse until after the case is resolved in court, at absolutely no cost to families. Since 1992, NCA has worked to deliver and coordinate the services required for children to feel safe, begin the healing process, and look forward to bright futures. 

NCA’s mission is to provide healing and justice for children who have been abused or exposed to violence. NCA is located in the Family Safety Center (FSC), a groundbreaking co-working space that facilitates services between the Metro Nashville Police Department (MNPD), the Department of Children’s Services (DCS), the District Attorney General’s Office (DA), and various nonprofit organizations. In collaboration with these partners, NCA works with children and non-offending caregivers using three evidence-based approaches: forensic interviews, Child Protective Investigative Team (CPIT) coordination, and trauma-informed therapy.  


NCA is seeking an enthusiastic Full-Time Data Specialist to implement data tracking and reporting systems for the organization to ensure future funding and to improve our work in serving children and families in Nashville. This person will play a critical role in developing and maintaining NCA’s evaluations and compliance with funders. The Data Specialist will have an opportunity to closely collaborate with program and development staff to support and maintain an evaluation model designed to accurately assess program impact, identify areas for improvement or intervention, and highlight opportunities for learning and replication.
