When the devastating effects of COVID-19 swept across the country and landed on our doorsteps, we quickly mobilized to provide our community with essential services. Thanks to the unwavering support of our members, volunteers and donors, our YMCA has been able to continue offering people a critical lifeline as we work to help our community recover and thrive.
We still need your help, now more than ever.

Many families have expressed how challenging it is to balance work and their children’s education as schools move to a virtual platform. Now that summer is over, children are in need of a safe and supportive environment where virtual learning can take place so caretakers can return to work and provide for their families.
