Communities that Care Supervisor
As a Supervisor at the SFC Center, Dorcas works with our Communities that Care team. From a young age, she has always been involved in mobilizing communities around issues of inequity through community, labor, or political organizing, and feels like this is how she can best serve her purpose. Dorcas joined The Foundling because of its decades-long legacy of creating change – its role building up communities, supporting the most vulnerable, and helping to lay the groundwork for the future. She wanted to be a part of this incredible heritage. She aims to be one of the many bridges to allow Black & Brown youth to navigate into a world of new and endless possibilities.
Dorcas, who grew up in Harlem and now lives in the northernmost Bronx, graduated from LaGuardia High School of Music & The Performing Arts, where she studied Classical Voice. She went on to study Sociology & Film at Binghamton University, and also holds a Bilingual Teaching Certification. For Dorcas, a good book, a great film, or some incredible, life-affirming music is the best recipe for a “breathe-deep” moment of relaxation. Her greatest role model – her mother – is a 4′ 11″ powerhouse who taught kindness, a deeply rooted compassion, and the belief in the sacredness of every sentient being.
