“Somebody has to do this, families can’t do it alone.”

— Austin Carrigg, FOUNDER


Our Beginning

THEYCAN is the brainchild of 3 parent’s who realized as a collective their voices were stronger together than apart. They set out to elicit change for children across the country and to put a face on the many programs utilized by families in America


The Youth and Children’s Advocacy Network works to educate and advocate on behalf of families to policy makers and our communities, we seek to empower families who are navigating the complex world of specialized health care needs.
