At the Y, we believe no child should be turned away due to the cost of programming. This is why we offer extensive Financial Assistance, through the Y Cares Program, to all families in need. Our Annual Campaign supports the Y Cares Program and ensures every child has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
Your support translates to life-changing programs for those in our community who need it most. From preschool to wellness for older adults, no other organization can impact as many, as powerfully, as the Y does every day.
ABOUT Y CARES
Y Cares provides scholarships to local children and families in need so they can experience Y programs and services such as child care, before and after school care, day camp, dance & arts, sports, swimming, enrichment and more – regardless of their ability to pay. Over the past three years, the Y has provided more than $2 million dollars in financial assistance to more than 10,000 local children, adults and families. Everyone is welcome; our goal is to not turn anyone away due to inability to pay.
