FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE AVAILABLE
Whenever a neighbor needs support, the Y is ready to help with open arms and caring hearts. We feel strongly that anyone who wants to be a part of the Y has the opportunity, regardless of his or her ability to pay. Therefore, we offer financial assistance to those individuals who qualify. Funds for this assistance come from the generous support of those who give to our Annual Campaign.
At the Y, we're committed to being a nonprofit that's FOR ALL.
We believe that whole communities thrive when people of all abilities come together. Our goal is to provide a safe, supportive environment to welcome children and adults with disabilities through inclusion and adaptive programs, services and resources.
YMCA Before and After-School programming is designed to help kids in our community succeed developmentally and academically. We focus on a well-rounded curriculum with 9 components that are 21st Century Skills, Arts & STEAM Activities, Global Exploration, Health & Wellness (BOKS - Building Our Kids’ Success), Leadership Development, Service Learning, Family & Parent Engagement, Guest Speakers and SEL - Social Emotional Learning.
Our staff are concerned about each child and strive to provide safe and fun experiences for all. We encourage children to participate, develop ideas, and most of all, have fun! Our staff are certified in CPR/First Aid, child abuse prevention and reporting, and emergency action plans. All staff have criminal background checks, child abuse clearances, and fingerprinting clearances. Our trained staff are experienced in working with children and look forward to playing a key role in your child’s educational program.
