News from your YMCA!

As I reach one month as the new Executive Director, I am genuinely inspired each day by our dedicated and diverse member community. Thanks to you and the generosity of our supporters, hundreds of families and children have access to health and wellness, learning, and fun at our Y. Last year, we awarded more than $510,000 in financial aid for membership, program, childcare and camp with projections even higher this year.

Exciting news! We’re hosting our first golf tournament at Bass Rocks on Monday, October 3, 2022 and you’re invited! 100% of the proceeds go directly into our financial assistance program for children and families.
