Actual stories from recipients…
“When the year ended, my family was in financial and mental turmoil. I became a divorcee with three children as well as lost my job that same month. It has been a struggle to keep my children positive. The one thing stable in their lives is being able to go to the YMCA. Being a single mom, the YMCA is a safe haven for my children. Allowing low income families to become members is such a Blessing! I will be forever grateful!”
"We want to set a good example for our children by living a healthy lifestyle and this scholarship helped us achieve that. Our membership allowed me to train for my first 5k and my oldest son was able to run with me! We also love swimming in the pool as a family!”
