Welcome to the
In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.
At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.
With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.
WHAT'S HAPPENING AT THE Y
At the Valley Points Family YMCA, no child, family or adult is turned away due to the inability to pay. We
recognized that for communities to succeed, everyone must be given the opportunity to be healthy,
confident, connected and secure. Financial assistance is available for those who require assistance for
programs and memberships. Funds made available for financial assistance are provided through our Y's annual Youth Development Campaign. Download a copy of the application form and bring it, along with the required documents, to either one of the branch locations.
Who is eligible for YMCA Financial Assistance?
An active older adult on a fixed income, a single parent who is trying to make ends meet, a family in transition, someone who needs a little help for a while. All of these people are the faces of the Financial Assistance Program at the Y.
How is Financial Assistance determined?
We offer a sliding fee scale based on the annual gross household income and the number of dependents living in the household.
Is it possible to join the Y for free?
The YMCA believes a strong sense of ownership and pride is developed if the assistance recipient has contributed to the cost of their Y involvement. Therefore, applicants will be asked to pay a portion of the fee.
Will I be treated differently? Will other members know that I am on financial assistance?
Only you and Membership Representative will have access to your application. We track assistance data, but only in terms of numbers and statistics; not by names of individuals.
Is assistance available for all programs?
Assistance is available for memberships, most YMCA programs and child care. Assistance will be awarded to be used toward membership or one program per participant at a time.
