We champion, support, and celebrate youth who care for chronically ill, injured, elderly, or disabled family members.
WHAT WE DO
Founded in 1998 in Boca Raton, FL, what is now the American Association of Caregiving Youth (AACY) is a nonprofit serving children and adolescents who provide significant or substantial assistance, often on a regular basis, to relatives or household members needing help because of a physical or mental illness, disability, or frailty.
We are the only organization in the U.S. dedicated solely to addressing Caregiving Youth issues.
