RESPONDING TO COMMUNITY NEED
In support of preventing the spread of COVID-19, the Y is closing buildings for recreation effective Monday, March 16, and will share an update regarding re-opening by March 31.
Adjusting our services is not unique to the Y. During this time of need, we are working with schools and community partners to support youth, families, and our senior population to stay healthy in spirit, mind, and body. We’ve launched Y360: Your Virtual YMCA to provide high-quality programs in the comfort of your home. We are in the process of providing additional online programs for your children while school is out.
Our commitment is to this community. We welcome your comments on our blog and Facebook pages and encourage everyone to take care of each other during this unprecedented time.

MEETING COMMUNITY NEEDS
We are part of our state and counties' emergency response efforts and working closely with school districts to provide needed childcare for our families with first responders and healthcare workers at no cost to these families.
We are working with our community partners to identify the greatest community needs and determine how we can best meet those needs. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and our News page for more information in the coming days and weeks.
Our community is facing an unprecedented crisis. If you can help, we encourage you to consider making a gift in support of the Y’s response to the community’s most urgent needs. Please text the word “Possible” to 44321 or donate online.
YOUR Y COMMUNITY CONTINUES ONLINE
All Y members are encouraged to access Y360: Your Virtual YMCA at no cost to stay healthy at home. More than 30 classes will be added this week! Stay connected to classes, programs, and your fellow Y members on Facebook and Instagram. Watch for new releases of virtual mindfulness classes, virtual youth programs, and more starting this week and throughout March and April.
We understand many of our Y members may be facing financial uncertainty. You may easily put your membership on hold at no cost by completing our on-hold form. The hold will continue until our facilities re-open for recreation and we will communicate prior to reactivating your membership.
If you’re registered for a paid program, we are offering a credit for the unused portion of the program that you can apply to future programs. For example, if your child was in a five-week program and has participated in four weeks, you will be credited for one week. Complete the program credit form.
LONGSTANDING COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITY
In this unique season, we are called to serve our community in unique ways. We have a history of adjusting our service delivery to meet large-scale community needs and look forward to supporting our community as we work together to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
