East Haddam Youth and Family Services is dedicated to inspiring the potential of and promoting the positive and healthy development of youth and families. EHYFS strives to create and enhance opportunities which advance the quality of life for all youth and families within the community by providing a spectrum of prevention, intervention, and advocacy services.
East Haddam Youth and Family Services (EHYFS) is a private, non-profit agency that was started by a small group of high school students and adults working together to provide services for young people in the rural community of East Haddam, Connecticut. EHYFS works collaboratively with the town government, school system, local and state police, civic and faith organizations, parent groups, youth and adults and several regional and state agencies. Agency staff and volunteers are committed to offering programs and services at little or no charge to facilitate and support an environment where young people thrive.
The agency is managed by an Executive Director who oversees a staff of five full and part-time employees who are staffed permanently or via contract. Positions include a Youth Activities Coordinator, Prevention Coordinator, Clinical Services Provider, Drug & Alcohol Counselor, and an Early Childhood Coordinator. EHYFS is governed by a board made up of nine volunteers who represent various sectors in the community with professional designations related to education and clinician work, non-profits, finance, public safety, law, and state and municipal public service. The board consists of elected members, including adults and youth.
