COVID-19 dramatically impacted our Y.
We've suffered significant economic loss and setbacks due to suspending Y operations and delivering limited services.
Now more than ever, the region needs the YMCA to be strong, poised to respond to crisis, focused on the community needs and positioned for the future. Help us keep the Y strong.
Throughout the pandemic, our Y has spearheaded efforts to support our community and those on the front lines of the COVID-19 fight. In March, when state and local restrictions forced us to temporarily suspend Y operations, we immediately pivoted our branches and staff to focus on helping during the initial onset of the crisis.
