HyeSook Chung

For the past 17 years, HyeSook Chung has worked to improve the lives of children through direct service, program management, philanthropy and advocacy. HyeSook has worked for various nonprofit organizations focusing on the areas of child care, early childhood development, welfare-to-work and school readiness.

In the fall of 2007, she began consulting for Washington Area Women's Foundation to support the Early Care and Education Funders Collaborative and the DC State Board of Education. While supporting the Collaborative, she worked with corporations and foundations to design and implement goals, programmatic design and grantmaking strategies for the Collaborative. For the DC State Board of Education, she conducted a preliminary Birth to Three Needs Assessment.

Earlier in her career, much of HyeSook's work was training and assisting family support workers, home visitors and outreach workers in community-based programs in the greater Boston area. In addition, HyeSook worked with the Head Start Quality Improvement Center and the Early Head Start Resource Center supporting the Early Head Start programs throughout the country.

HyeSook serves on numerous advisory boards focused on social change and outcomes for children, including the Annie E. Casey’s KIDS COUNT steering committee, DC Medical Care Advisory Committee, the Home Visitation Council and DATA KIND.

She is a proud mother of two DCPS students.
