Support for Youth and their Families

Support programs are the most essential element of the AYS program. From thousands of hours of community service, to 24 hour crisis intervention, to mediation, the AYS staff spends countless hours with individuals or small groups dealing with a variety of critical youth development issues. AYS serves as a bridge between a young person’s needs and the services that can help them become a well-rounded individual.

If you need someone to talk with or know someone in crisis, please call us at 978.623.8241 or Click here to email Bill Fahey.
