Harlem Dowling West Side Center is a small ($4.5m in revenue), well run organization that has been around since 1836. Harlem Dowling provides local families with the necessary means and knowledge to become self-sufficient and engaged, positive community members. They offer a wide array of family and child welfare services that are dynamic, holistic, and driven by the specific needs of those whom they serve in Harlem and Queens, including family preservation and child abuse prevention, service coordination for individuals with developmental disabilities, after school programming, and emergency food pantry services. A majority of the staff are from the area they serve and intimately familiar with its nuances and needs: they are trained professionals who care deeply about each and every individual they service and take great pride in the important work that they do each and every day. If you are interested in helping with Black Lives Matter, this could be the opportunity you have been looking for. Now that our board has met remotely since March, we are open to board members from outside the NYC area.
