Become Part of the Solution

Harlem Dowling - West Side Center For Children And Family Services works to develop confidence, resilience, academic skills and adult/family support that enables the children we serve to become responsible, self-sufficient adults.

Harlem Dowling is the surviving entity of the Colored Orphan Asylum that was founded in 1836. We provide an array of services that supports individuals, children, and families in the New York City area. Our services includes family support programs, services to individuals with developmental challenges, after school and summer camp programming, evidence-based individual and group level parenting interventions, and an emergency food pantry.
