Vaughn Harper was a dedicated friend and supporter of the children and families of Harlem Dowling-West Side Center. For more than five years he hosted an annual Holiday Toy Drive for our children, enlisting friends and family to provide gifts to the more than 1200 children we served daily.
Vaughn wanted to impact the community by creating opportunities for children and families to have a safe haven to develop confidence, resilience, and academic excellence. The Home for Harlem Dowling, a 60-unit affordable housing building project in Central Harlem, provided such an opportunity.
The Vaughn Harper Computer Center is a legacy to his commitment to the organization and will provide the community access to computer services during the evenings and on Saturdays. We look forward to the completion of the Center in April 2021. Assistance is still needed to ensure the ongoing operation of the computer center.
