Exchange Family Center Leadership Team
The Exchange Family Center in Durham named Rachel Galanter, an award-winning advocate for preventing child abuse, as its new Executive Director in 2015.
“We are thrilled that Rachel will become the Exchange Family Center’s new executive director,” said Michael Darrow, president of EFC’s Board of Directors. “Rachel’s experience, expertise and passionate commitment to best practices, our agency, and our community made her the stand-out choice. With a growing national reputation in the field of parent engagement and home-based models, she is clearly the right leader to bring new and insightful partnerships to EFC as we enter our 23rd year of service.”
Rachel earned her Bachelor's degree in Psychology at Columbia University and her Master's in Public Health (Maternal and Child Health) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Rachel joined the Exchange Family Center in 2000 as the Family Support Program Manager. She helped build that program, incorporating interns from the UNC School of Social Work, and developing sustainable funding for staff who have served over 600 families with in-home parent coaching. The program focuses on partnering with families to strengthen parent-child relationships and help caregivers develop their ability to successfully manage challenging behaviors.
In 2013, Prevent Child Abuse North Carolina presented Rachel with the prestigious Donna Stone Award, recognizing her significant contributions to supporting parents in their efforts to provide safe, stable, nurturing and healthy environments for their children, including her efforts to bring evidence-based family strengthening programs to agencies throughout the area.
