The Medfield Youth Outreach Program is located under the auspices of the Medfield Board of Health. The purpose of the office is to serve youth from infancy to age eighteen and their families with a host of social services. Staff provide free and confidential individual and family counseling, assistance with access to financial assistance programs, information and referral, community programming, and crisis intervention to Medfield residents. The office is an intake site for the federal Fuel Assistance Program for Medfield residents.
The Medfield Youth Outreach Office also facilitates various groups, programs, and services within the community that are related to the needs of youth and their families. The programs offered are often prevention and psycho-educationally based. Medfield Youth Outreach is a founding member and serves on the steering committees of Medfield Coalition for Suicide Prevention (MCSP) and Medfield Cares About Prevention (MCAP).
The Medfield Youth Outreach Office collaborates with a wide network of organizations to better meet the needs of Medfield youth and their families including networks, consortiums, professional associations, religious institutions, and civic groups.
