Who We Are


Abraham Youth and Family Services was born from the vision of its founder, Ancell Hamlin, while growing up in what many would consider a challenging environment. At an early age he began to carve out his niche as a leader in his community and advocate for children. He realized very early on that his current circumstances did not define him nor did they determine his future potential and he was determined to pass this belief on to the people he served. As a community activist, he quickly realized that quality mental health and substance abuse services dedicated to serving the community were not present or easily accessible.  So, he set out to ensure that those who needed support received it from caring and committed individuals who are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of those who need it the most.
