Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services

Our vision is to build a nurturing community in which children are well cared for, where the opinions of young people are valued, where adults are empowered to live healthy, productive lives and where all are seen as valued members of the community.

WYFCS helps people of all ages with a broad spectrum of services that include mental health counseling, youth and adolescent enrichment programs, advocacy for abused and neglected children, and empowerment programs for those less fortunate.

Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services is a non-profit organization located in Berlin, Maryland and has been serving the community since 1975.

CASA Volunteers Sworn In

Congratulations to our five new CASA volunteers that were sworn in December 13th! CASA volunteers advocate for children who have been abused or neglected and who, through no fault of their own, end up in the court system. CASA is the only program where everyday citizens are appointed by judges to speak up for a child’s safety and well-being.

WYFCS Receives Grants to Expand Access to Mental Healthcare

On Wednesday, December 6, WYFCS received two grants that will expand access to mental healthcare in the region. The Maryland Community Health Resources Commission and the The Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation, Inc. contributed $125,000 each to support service expansion at WYFCS. The grants will enable WYFCS to hire two clinicians to provide mental health services. Our agency can’t thank these two phenomenal organizations enough for their support!
