APCYF is a community-led advisory group of 16 appointed community members and 8 designated Arlington County Government and Arlington Public Schools staff. The Partnership identifies community needs through research and surveys, and works with the community to address the needs and advocate for improved policies and programs for children, youth and their families. For more information, see our site, or Facebook page.

- Organizations that provide information, education and raise awareness.
- Support groups, online counseling or chat services, parenting guides and training used in schools.
- Services provided by schools, county health department, nonprofit organizations, hospitals and private clinics; national helplines; general information about getting treatment; and searchable databases for private providers.
- Resources for crisis intervention, assessment, rapid response and hospitalization; national hotlines.
