It is the mission of the Y to provide services to all those who need them, regardless of their ability to pay established fees. The Y wants to be sure that assistance goes to those most in need. With information on income, expenses and family size, we can award assistance in a fair and consistent manner. Our commitment to assist those in need helps us build the character values that the Y strives to instill within our organization and community through Youth Development, Social Responsibility, and Healthy Living.
