David Harrington

Deputy Director, Brownsville Partnership

David Harrington is the Co-Director of United for Brownsville (www.unitedforbrownsville.org) and the Deputy Director of the Brownsville Partnership. United for Brownsville (UB) is an initiative co-sponsored by Community Solutions/the Brownsville Partnership. We are creating a framework to redefine the relationships between parents and service providers and improve the language and social-emotional developmental outcomes of children aged 0-3. UB is a joint venture with SCO Family of Services, and David works alongside a Co-Director from SCO. Aside from UB, David’s most challenging work in the infant and toddler sphere is being the father to a Brooklyn baby. Prior to Community Solutions, David was an Associate Director of Analytics for the Office of District Planning at the New York City Department of Education, where he engaged in strategic planning on school rezonings and other projects that improved learning conditions for tens of thousands of students in the Bronx and Queens. He has also directed educational programs at Legal Outreach, Inc., a non-profit college preparatory organization for students from underserved populations, and led fundraising and communications for a nonprofit bilingual school in Honduras. David hails from Hartford, CT, and has a BA in English from Grinnell College and an MFA in Creative Writing from Columbia University.
