Kelley and Gabby S.

Morgan Family YMCA

Since Kelley and her daughter Gabby first joined the Y in 2013, the pair have participated in more than 20 programs. The Y serves as an outlet for Gabby's energy. Kelley explains, "Gabby is the girl who slipped her cleats on after ballet class and ran straight to soccer practice still wearing her tutu."

Kelley finds that the Y fills a different need in her own wellness - one of connection and relationship. "I've been able to get things off my chest. I feel like I have gotten help and prayer support from the Y."

Kelley is bold in her gratitude to supporters of the YMCA's Annual Campaign, which makes membership available to people like her, who couldn't otherwise afford it. "If a family comes to the Y, and they can't afford it, it's amazing to know that they'll be told there is still a way."
