Northside Center

NORTHSIDE CENTER FOR 
CHILD DEVELOPMENT

has been a leader in mental/behavioral health and education services since 1946. With a focus on clinical excellence and emphasis on strengthening families and children’s self – esteem, Northside’s innovative programs were the first of their kind in Harlem. We set a standard of excellence within the community that many social service agencies have since followed.  

Remembering Susan Patricof

It is with profound sorrow that Northside Center announces that our long-time Board Chair, President and Board Member, Mrs. Susan Patricof passed away on January 18th, following a long illness. Mrs. Patricof passed away peacefully, in her home, surrounded by her family.

Mrs. Patricof’s dedication, generosity, and love for Northside and the children we serve, was unmatched and will be missed terribly. For over 40 years, Mrs. Patricof led Northside in a variety of roles – having been Board Chair for well over 15 years, Board President and chair of the Board Gala Committee. She was deeply involved in every aspect of Northside, continuing to visit all of the programs as much as she could, even as her health declined. Indeed, Mrs. Patricof’s involvement and impact on Northside has been great and serves as an inspiration to us all as we honor her memory.

In recognition of the many years of dedication and support we proudly named Northside’s East Harlem, Early Head Start/Head Start Program after her “The Susan Patricof Head Start Center (SPHS.)” The kindness, warmth and love Mrs. Patricof exuded will be missed, so very much and will live in Northside’s ongoing work with children and families, which was one of her greatest passions in life. I know you join with me in extending our deepest condolences to the Patricof family.
