Westwood Youth & Family Services has been supporting and advocating for the children and families in our community since 1986. Formerly known as the Westwood Youth Commission, we are a municipally funded agency providing clinical and supportive services designed to foster the healthy growth of children ages 4-18. Westwood Youth & Family Services works in close collaboration with town agencies, the Westwood Public Schools, and other community based non-profit groups.
