Financial Assistance

What is a Y Mission Membership?

At the Y, we believe that everyone in our community should have the opportunity to benefit from YMCA programs and services. Our Financial Assistance Program is central to our mission. When someone loses a job, when medical bills become overwhelming, or when other challenging situations occur, people need the support of the Y. Financial assistance is available for membership which provides families and individuals access to our pools, two ice rinks a new gymnasium, fitness classes, our fitness center, and free basic skating lessons.
Programs scholarships facilitate access to our great enrichment programs which include pre-school, School Age Childcare, summer camp, summer recreation for pre-schoolers, STEM programs and more.
