Harlem Dowling-West Side Center for Children and Family Services rebooted our Parent Advisory Council (PAC) in the spring of 2022. The COVID-19 pandemic significantly impacted children and families across the CIty. Many of our families felt isolated and lacked the supports and resources necessary. Our Parent Advisory Council consists of parents/caregivers from our family support and after school programs. The PAC meets with the leadership of the organization and a cross section of agency staff to discuss programmatic initiatives and issues including staffing, and overall program quality on a quarterly basis. Monthly, the PAC meets virtually via Microsoft Teams, and is supported by the Director of Quality Improvement, FTC & Training.

Qumar Dennis Ekwobi - Chairperson

Belkis Acevado - Vice Chair
