Abbotsford Child & Youth Committee
The Abbotsford Child and Youth Committee (ACYC) is a group of community partners, including service providers and family members, that are dedicated to improving the lives of children, youth, and families in Abbotsford.
Interdependence and collaboration are our greatest strengths. By working together we are able to better meet the needs of our community. We hope to spur one another to initiate positive change and accomplish that change through team work and mutual support.
The Abbotsford Child & Youth Committee website provides an online resource of programs, services, and supports including mental health and substance use resources for children, youth, and families in Abbotsford. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive listing of programs available in the community from recreation and social programs to supports for challenging issues including meeting basic needs and mental health.
