Auburn Youth & Family Services, Inc. is a private, non-profit, multi-service organization for children, young adults, and families of Auburn. Formerly known as the Auburn Project, the original focus was prevention of drug/alcohol abuse through education and intervention. Over the years, the program has expanded. In 1991, the agency's name was changed to Auburn Youth and Family Services to reflect their growth and expansion of services. The services of AYFS encompass the treatment of the entire family, focusing on intervention and early prevention.

"In the past few years, many families have felt the effects of the uneasy economy. AYFS's services have become even more crucial during this time, by helping families get on the right path, while encouraging self-sufficiency," commented Joseph Coderre, President and CEO of Savers Bank.

Each year, Savers Bank helps address a wide range of needs in the communities placing a special emphasis on relationships with local organizations, which help our communities grow strong.

With offices in Southbridge, Uxbridge, Auburn, Grafton, Charlton, and Sturbridge, Savers Bank is a member of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Federal Home Loan Bank, the Co-operative Central Bank, and Massachusetts Bankers Association. Founded in 1910, Savers Bank has assets of over $400 million, offers a full range of consumer and commercial banking services, and a strong legacy of community commitment and customer service.
