At the YMCA, we believe every young person deserves the chance to grow into a healthy, happy adult. But too many are being held back by barriers that are impossible to overcome on their own.
The pandemic has left a lasting effect on children in our community, impacing their physical and mental health, well-being, and prospects for the future.
Children need the Y. It is more critical than ever for children to access YMCA programs to play, socialize and exercise.
Unfortunately, 1 in 3 children will require financial assistance to participate.
The only way our programs and services can make a real difference is if they are truly accessible. We're committed to ensuring every child, no matter what challenges they face, can access the YMCA.
By making a gift to the YMCA, you are ensuring children can safely get back to the things they love...
