A BETTER LIFESTYLE AHEAD


 
 
When Michael fell on hard times after losing his local business, he had no motivation, struggled emotionally and was falling into depression.  While Michael knew he could not afford a Y membership, he also knew he needed to make a change. 
 
So, thanks to a free seven-day pass to the Y, Michael visited and learned that financial assistance was available for families like his.  After caring and respectful staff helped he and his family qualify for assistance, Michael started coming to the Y daily. 
 
He has lost over 25 pounds, lowered his cholesterol and credits the Y. In reflecting on the Y’s generosity to his family, Michael states: “We would like to thank you for the amount of support and generosity you provide by helping others less fortunate within our community.  It is because of all of you that my family can now be part of something of importance, a way to get healthier and feel better as well as making new friends along the way.  We are looking forward to a better lifestyle ahead of us."
 
Thanks to the Y’s financial assistance program, Michael has found a place to thrive. 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, or stop in to any of our branches to learn more and pick up an application.
