Christy Harmon, Founder & CEO

Christy Harmon is the CEO and Founder of Chic Behavioral Health and Community Services, a youth-based development program designed to remove barriers for female success. With heavy emphasis on trauma informed care, emotional intelligence, and self-efficacy; Christy has managed to motivate and redirect some of the most troubled youth with her engaging and relevant programs. Her clientele includes various types of youth organizations from the Boys and Girls Club of Central Iowa, Des Moines Public Schools, and youth detention centers. Christy serves on several committees where her voice and initiatives are heard including CPPC (Community Partnerships for Protecting Children), Iowa Task Force for Young Women, and African American Case Consultation Review Team. Her passion for empowering girls can be summed up in one statement, “Your self-worth is determined by you. You don’t have to depend on someone telling you who you are.”
