Anita Smith of the Youth and Family services came to last week’s NCPCA meeting and gave a presentation on the department.
Also attended a family summit at the end of last year at the YFS and had the opportunity to get to know more of the activities in the center.
It’s a great resource for the north College Park residents; especially for those having difficulties with everyday living.
The center is conveniently located in the north College Park (4912 Nantucket Road, please see the map below). Thus it’s a great resource for the District 1 residents.
The YFS provides services in English and Spanish in the areas of family counseling, parenting classes and support groups, youth life kill groups and referral programs. Their advocacy activities include coordination to ESOL programs, advocacy with schools and social services.
They also have a recreation center which is open between 3pm to 7pm. The drop-in center is operated by the M-NCPPC.
