The Cops ‘n Kids Youth Center is managed in partnership between the Local Community Housing Corporation (LCHC) sister organization of Tarpon Springs Housing Authority and the City of Tarpon Springs Police Department. This partnership has provided 24 years of impactful programming for students.

Organizational oversight is facilitated by the LCHC and executive management. All aspects administrative and operational practices are regulated and monitored by relative quality assurance agencies such as the Pinellas County Licensing Board, Health Department, and Program(s) funders such as the Juvenile Welfare Board and the Department of Juvenile Justice. The Cops ‘n Kids Youth Center has an excellent history of performance as prescribed by monitoring agencies and often exceeds expectations: sound administrative management, good operational practices and quality program delivery.

We are ever grateful to our partners and collaborator organizations both for profit and nonprofit who directly enhance our youth and family programming services in a variety of ways. Below are a few of our many partners that guide us and support of families!
