Welcome to the New York City Office of Parent to Parent of NYS

– a place for us to find each other, a place for us to be made strong.
Jacquelyn Israel is the mother of three adult children and grandmother to three grandchildren. She lives on Staten Island surrounded by her family. Her family is overcoming challenges with learning disabilities and they are learning from life. Understanding and recognizing that not everyone learns the same has given her family the ability to have more patience with each other. They give themselves a break when doing something that might be hard and have learned to laugh themselves.
My name is Kerbanoo D'Rozario, my husband and I are the proud parents of a 23 year old son and an 18 year old daughter. I would like to share my experience of what brought me here today to be a part of Parent to Parent.
I was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and still live there.
