Children can also stay connected during separation by building holiday care packages for their parent and taking advantage of services like United Through Reading, that videotapes a parent reading their child’s favorite book, or the Armed Services YMCA’s Operation Kid Comfort program that provides a personally handcrafted quilt or pillow.


We are also proud to continue our partnership with the Armed Services YMCA, to offer memberships and respite child care services to eligible military families and personnel through the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Military Outreach Initiative. This program addresses the needs of the families of deployed military personnel and their families.
