Lakewood Family YMCA

After a tragic car accident in which she lost her sister and grandparents, and suffered from multiple injuries, including a brain injury, Alosia missed a lot of school and fell months behind her peers. She enrolled in the Y Power Scholars Program offered at Tyee Park Elementary School this summer and gained back the time she lost.

“Being a Power Scholar not only helped her with academics, but also provided opportunities to be social and have some fun during the summer,” says her mom, Daryl.

In the face of financial hardship, the Y is providing 100% financial aid to Alosia and her family to enjoy all of the programs at the Y. Daryl credits the Y as part of the reason the kids have bounced back so fast from all the trauma of the past year. She’s thankful for the memories made and the memories they’ll continue to make at the Y.
