On Sunday August 6, 2017, Kim Sirdevan, President and CEO of the Youth Crisis Center, was interviewed by iHeart Radio about their current happenings, the repositioning of their brand, and new collaboration with JASMYN. The Youth Crisis Center, founded in 1974, is known as Florida’s first runaway program, has grown to be one of the largest and best-known providers of services for children, teens, young adults, and families. 43 years later YCC serves over 1,300 clients annually by helping to provide therapeutic intervention to stabilize families in crisis situations.
Kim Sirdevan has been with the Youth Crisis Center for 17 years. Kim knew at an early age that she wanted to help children by giving them an opportunity to have a voice when often their concerns were overshadowed by life occurrences. After earning her master’s degree in social work, she joined YCC as a therapist, where she was able to listen and provide therapeutic guidance and support for the children and families who desperately needed direction. Now, as President and CEO of the Youth Crisis Center, she continues to provide children and families therapeutic intervention by creating policy and programs that are relevant to the ongoing challenges of our community as well as advocacy at the state level through dialogue with state legislators.
