American Association of Caregiving Youth

Our agency serves 6th-12th grade youth in South Palm Beach County who are caregivers for a sick guardian, sibling or relative. Our volunteer drivers provide transportation to youth and sometimes family members to and from an agency event or an appointment related to the caregiving youth and/or family member's health & well being.
