Our ability to support the community is under a greater threat than ever before, while our facilities were forced to close earlier this year. Your contribution to the Y today ensures the Y will be here tomorrow.

Whether due to unemployment, poor health, financial hardship or special circumstance, people struggle to provide for their families. We need your help to ensure that no one is denied a chance to participate because of an inability to pay. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body.

Contributions received from the Friend of Youth Annual Campaign fund the growing number of scholarships awarded to individuals and families in need of vital Y programs and services.
