The Cops ‘n Kids Youth Center staff team members pride themselves in serving children and teens with a high level of professionalism, compassion and respect…oh and we love to have a great time every day. Each team member brings his or her own unique culture, credentials, and professional experience to the Center. Staff on and off site have decades of experience in multiple fields that specialize caring for children such as education, psychology, child care, out of school time, and behavioral health. We are dedicated to support youth with a trauma sensitive approach understanding that exposure to early traumatic experiences play a significant part in managing all aspects of life.
We are especially grateful for the direct role modeling and resources provided by the City of Tarpon Springs Police Department leadership and Officers. They visit the Center weekly to interact with youth and support staff whether it be through homework help, chaperoning off site trips, playing games, etc.
