Stories to inspire you!


Over the past few years, grandparents Aimee and David have opened their hearts and home to granddaughter Anna.  Despite both grandparents facing health issues resulting in multiple hospital stays, the loving family has done their best to provide quality educational opportunities for happy, fun-loving Anna. 
In January, Anna joined the Forks Education Center Preschool family. Unfortunately, the strain of healthcare costs and lost work time forced Anna’s grandparents to consider whether or not they could keep Anna enrolled at the Y.  But as Anna’s grandfather states, “The Y has been amazing for Anna.” 
Caring Y staff ensured Anna’s learning could continue thanks to our financial assistance program, and Aimee, David and the Y’s Forks Education Center team continue cheering on Anna as she learns, grows and thrives.  
Thanks to the Y’s Financial Assistance Program, Anna has found stability, fun and learning.  Day in and day out, the Y provides service solutions meeting key local needs.  Thanks to our staff, volunteers and community supporters, we provide opportunities for all neighbors to build a brighter future, side by side.

Financial Assistance


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 in English or download this form in Spanish, or stop in to any of our branches to learn more and pick up an application.
