Description

We aren't letting Covid-19 stop us from staying connected to our young caregivers and their families!
So many Canadians right now are experiencing what caregivers go through all the time: social distancing, isolation, financial distress, fear, anxiety and worry. Now imagine being a young caregiver during this time of uncertainty and worry! Our staff are working hard to continue with our important impact on the lives of young caregivers. We need your support!
Who We Are:
Young Caregivers Association is recognized nationally as the leader in service, awareness and empowerment for young caregivers and their families. Young caregivers are children and youth ages 5 to 25 who are family caregivers for loved ones with illness (physical and mental), disability (physical or intellectual), addictions or a language barrier.
Young caregivers are a hidden population of family caregivers and experience a range of risks that include increased stress and depressive symptoms, low self-esteem, high anxiety levels, loneliness and isolation and difficulty relating to peers. Our unique program called Powerhouse is  designed to empower young caregivers while teaching them skills to help them be successful at home and school.
Our belief that caregiving is a family effort is the backbone for all we do along with the view that young caregivers are experts in their own lives. Our vision is a Canada where young caregivers and their families are recognized, supported and empowered to achieve their full potential.
