Case Management

YMCA Youth & Family Services offers programs for youth and families affected by Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) such as: abuse, neglect, divorce, incarceration, alcohol or drug addictions, mental illness, etc. Our programs create safety, trust and connection in communities across Montgomery County, MD.

  • Each year, more than 2,000 youth and teens in Montgomery County, MD, participate in our programs. They and their families are served by YMCA Youth & Family Services in: Academic enrichment, after school programs, mentoring, summer camps, outdoor adventure, youth sports, family programs and community events.


I have volunteered with YFS for the past 5 years because it keeps me deeply connected with my community. Montgomery County is a diverse place with a lot of wealth and resources, but it also has unmet social service needs. It is very satisfying to work with YFS staff and volunteers to help meet these needs.”
