An estimated 1.4 million U.S. children take care of ailing parents, grandparents, and siblings. The United Methodist Church has created a video about AACY and Connie Siskowski, a United Methodist and member of our church, who was inspired to create this organization to support child caregivers. Connie was also named one of CNN’s 2012 Heroes (video.) A more detailed video about what AACY is all about can be seen here.  For more information, please go to www.aacy.org or call 561-391-7401.
