About Us

The Town of Bedford is a community of just over 13,000 residents located in Middlesex County about 15 miles northwest of Boston. Bedford Youth and Family Services (YFS) is a town department that is committed to identifying the social, emotional and developmental needs of children, youth, adults and families in Bedford and through programs, services, outreach and support, strive to meet those needs. YFS is a division of the Health and Human Services Department, formed in FY20, in conjunction with the Board of Health and the Council on Aging.

In executing it’s mission, YFS provides supportive counseling, community education, prevention resources and social service referrals, youth empowerment programming and healthy community programming and wellness outreach. YFS staff work closely with schools, police, other town departments, community agencies and citizen groups. We envision a town committed to the well-being and safety of children, youth, and families; a town that promotes community awareness of healthy lifestyles; and a community where these commitments are demonstrated in policies and actions.
