Andover, Hebron and Marlborough (AHM) Youth and Family Services was founded in 1983 through a grassroots effort of a small group of local residents. Their vision was to incorporate and create a regional family focused agency based upon the Youth Services Bureau model found in communities across Connecticut.

Over the years, the regional non-profit Youth Services Bureau has served thousands of children and families.  AHM is one of the hundred and two Youth Service Bureaus (YSBs) statewide.  We are the parent organization of both a Youth Services Bureau and a Family Resource Center.

This agency’s comprehensive family focused service delivery system includes the provision of juvenile justice, prevention, mental health, and positive youth development programs for local children, teens and adults.

Youth Service Bureaus have been a part of the Connecticut landscape since the 1970’s. Youth Service Bureaus by State Statue 10-19m are responsible for researching, developing, and coordinating services that divert young people from the criminal justice system through the provision of intervention, prevention, and positive youth development services.

Since 1983, our organization has worked tirelessly to develop and maintain a multitude of programs and services that support the social and emotional well-being of children and teens. AHM is also committed to help improve the quality of community life for all citizens. We do so through our efforts to strengthen the critical role that families play in the lives of their children. Providing these services is an effort that involves our volunteers, donors, employees and community partners, (towns, schools, civic groups and law enforcement).
