Access for All

The Y is here for all. We serve people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and incomes. Thanks to generous support from donors to our annual campaign, scholarship funds are available for membership, programs, and child care. 

The Y offers sliding-scale fees to fit each individual's or family's financial situation. We do not turn away anyone for the inability to pay.
