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.
