FAMILIES THRIVE AT THE Y“Since I can remember, I’ve had the privilege of attending the Y. My brother and I were raised by our single mother and although she faced hardships, she always provided a safe, supportive and positive environment. So it’s no surprise that once we began participating in the Y, thanks to the scholarship program, we gained an additional family that assisted in instilling positive values and encouragement. Fast forward to a young family of my own--I knew exactly where to go when searching for a caring and supportive environment. My family and I are able to participate in many activities at the YMCA because of the wonderful scholarship program that is available to us. We regularly use the gym, and my daughters attend Child Watch--which they always look forward to. It’s very comforting to be able to focus on my health while knowing my daughters are well taken care of. The staff members at the Y always demonstrate an honest, caring and respectful attitude toward my family, and I am forever grateful for that. I am very blessed to be part of the YMCA. The feeling of belonging when I walk in the doors and am greeted as family is irreplaceable.”
