YMCA Financial Assistance Program
All people are welcome at the YMCA. Due
to a sliding fee scale based on family size and income,
YMCA programs are affordable for the whole community.
Within our financial capabilities, no person is refused
program or membership privileges because of inability to
pay. The YMCA is a nonprofit association
offering opportunities for personal growth and service
to others. To support our assisted members, we ask
people to complete a confidential application form.
