American Association of Caregiving Youth is the National resource for the support of children who are caring for ill, injured, elderly, or disabled family members.  More than 1.3 million children in the United States sacrifice their education, health and emotional growth as they take on the responsibilities of providing care for family members.

AACY provides to youth and their families: support and information, community resources and referrals, a toll-free number, web-based discussion forum, direct services in school, out of school and at home through its affiliated network.

With these services, AACY gives caregiving youth the opportunity to complete their education, experience childhood and become productive adult members of the community.
