A heart filled with love can create a Season of Possibilities


For Grandmother Crystal-or Nanny, as she is affectionately called- the Y's Child Care team has served as a part of her family support system for years. Almost three years ago, Crystal, who has fourteen grandchildren, received a call that one of her grandchildren, Chrissy, was in need of a new home. 


With two of her grandchildren already legally adopted and one in need of daytime medical care, Crystal turned to the Y to help Chrissy learn, grow and thrive. Support provided by Y staff ensured Chrissy could continue learning with a scholarship through the Y's Financial Assistance Program.


It takes a village to raise a child,

and the Y is here to provide children and families with compassionate support.


In the lives of Crystal and Chrissy, and thousands of families like theirs throughout the Lehigh Valley, the Y is so much more than an organization. The Y is a resource hub providing possibilities for local children, families and Seniors to belong, connect and thrive.


During this season of giving and miraculous possibilities,

would you please consider a $25, $50, or even a $250 gift, helping the Y create more possibilities for our neighbors just like Crystal and her grandchildren?





We are grateful to all of our generous Greater Valley YMCA partners and supporters! Your support ensures we are able to continuously provide care and services to those in need throughout our entire community. Throughout the holiday season, we will update this page to acknowledge all who donate to our 2022 Season of Possibilities Campaign.
