READY FOR A CHANGE
In May of 2017, Desa’ree was ready for a change: “I was 354 pounds, lost, confused and determined to lose weight.” Starting off in the Y’s fitness center, Desar’ee found equipment suited to her needs and accommodating to her bad back. As she began to feel more comfortable with fitness, she joined aerobic classes and settled into a schedule of visiting the Y five days a week, sometimes for five hours at a time. The Y staff embraced her goals, providing support and encouragement, “Now, the Y feels like my second home.” One year later, Desa’ree has lost 189 pounds, no longer pre-diabetic or suffering from high blood pressure. “If you’re looking for a place like home to come swim, workout and be, the Y is for you and your entire family.”
Thanks to the Y’s financial assistance program, Desa’ree is able to proactively address her health while feeling supported in her goals. The Y is here to help neighbors along their journeys, with accommodating programs, group fitness programs, and most important, with Y staff who truly care.
Join the Y
Households across our community have different needs so we offer a variety of membership types. Each of our locations offer many different programs, schedules, and classes therefore offerings and fees may vary by branch.
Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. At The Y, no child, family or adult is turned away due to an inability to pay.
Financial assistance awards are assessed on a case by case basis during a one-on-one, confidential session with a staff member. Those interested in applying for our financial assistance program are encouraged to download this form, or stop in to any of our branches to learn more and pick up an application.
