She has worked with people struggling with mental health and substance use issues as well as people living with HIV. Kim brings with her a wealth of experience and a dedication to helping serve vulnerable communities.

“We are thrilled to welcome Kim back to the FCA family. She’s been a trusted community partner for many years and her longstanding commitment to vulnerable populations will serve our programs and our clients well,” said FCA President/CEO Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds.

Kim attended St. Joseph’s College for her undergraduate degree in Human Relations. She later went on to receive a Master’s Degree in Social Work from Stony Brook University.

The new AVP is delighted to return to FCA where she started her career years ago.  “It is nice to be back on board and to be part of an organization that is doing such great work,” Livingston said.
