Equal Access For All

YMCA Assistance Program

In these uncertain times, we make assistance available to you and your family. We don’t want anyone to be turned away and this program will help you and your family take part in programs at the Y. Assistance is provided based on need, using established guidelines. Download our Assistance Application and/or Camp Assistance Application today and return it to your branch YMCA Front Desk. All requests are confidential. This funding is made possible due to the generosity of people who contribute to our Annual Support Campaign. You can help the Y serve the community by designating your United Way gift directly to our Donor Code #08320.

To show how much we value our community, we collectively support one another through paid memberships. A portion of every paid membership serves to sponsor people from all parts of our community, giving them access to YMCA membership that they otherwise would not be able to afford. Because of this subsidy everyone in our community may receive the incredible advantage of joining the Y.  We also participate in a national YMCA military membership program which discounts the price off membership for active military and their families.



How Much Assistance Will Be Provided?

It depends on the program and the extent of need. Most people are willing and able to pay something; therefore, it is usually more than 20 percent of the fee to be provided.

How Long Will the Assistance Continue?

Assistance will usually be granted for a specific time period. When the time is up, and assistance is still needed, you may ask for an extension.

Can I Do Anything in Return for This Assistance?

You are strongly encouraged to pay or earn part of your Y services. You can help at the Y by typing, getting a large mailing assembled, picking up around the building, or helping with a special event. We would appreciate receiving a short note from you, describing how the program has helped you; our donors appreciate knowing how their contributions have helped individuals in our community.
