On Thursday, October 3, 2019 Worcester Youth and Family Counseling Services, Inc. will hold their Annual Celebration to celebrate 44 years of serving the community. The celebration will be held in the Ray Community Room, in the Worcester Youth & Family office, located at 124 North Main Street, Berlin, MD 21811, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. The event is offered free of charge, with complimentary hors d’oeuvres provided by Denovo’s Trattoria.

Each year, Worcester Youth & Family recognizes individuals for their support and dedication to the agency’s mission. The honorees are presented with wall décor in their name in the shape of a “sun” to represent the “rays of hope” these individuals have offered the community. This year the following community members will be recognized: Ron Pilling of the Suicide Prevention Coalition as Distinguished Advocate and Kenny Tomaselli, Michele “Shelly” Bruder and John Lewis as Outstanding Contributors.
This year, Worcester Youth & Family served more than a thousand of our friends and neighbors by: helping to prevent homelessness; supporting and empowering at-risk adolescent girls and boys; offering cultural, educational, and wellness experiences to children during out of school time; providing comprehensive counseling and therapy services to those coping with life’s stressors; and advocating for neglected and abused children so they may have a brighter future.
Worcester Youth & Family is a non-profit organization located in Berlin, Maryland and has been serving the community since 1975. Worcester Youth & Family serves people of all ages by offering a broad spectrum of services, including mental health counseling, youth and adolescent enrichment programs, advocacy for abused and neglected children, and empowerment programs for those less fortunate.
