For over 128 years the Treasure Valley Family YMCA has been a support for community members in need. The Y is committed to strengthening communities to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background, has the opportunity to have the Y experience. The Y Financial Assistance program makes this possible.
Income-based financial assistance is available to all who qualify, including those who are being impacted by the current government shutdown. Assistance is available for all programs the Y offers. As we enter the fourth week of the shutdown, many federal workers in the Treasure Valley remain uncertain about when their next paycheck will come, and the Y wants to be a resource during this time.
No one is denied the Y’s service due to the inability to pay.
“The Treasure Valley Family YMCA believes that everyone, regardless of their financial situation, deserves access to our services,” said David Duro, President and CEO of the Treasure Valley Family YMCA.
“Health and wellness often loses priority when financial uncertainty occurs and the YMCA offers hundreds of programs, youth, adults, and families can access to achieve healthy living.”
Anyone in need is encouraged to visit their local YMCA branch to apply for financial assistance towards YMCA membership or Y programs. YMCA facility locations and program information can be found at www.ymcatvidaho.org.
