EVERYONE IS WELCOME AT THE Y

The Y believes that everyone deserves the chance to succeed. Regardless of your financial situation, we will work with you to receive all the benefits of our membership. Through the generosity of donors, we are able to provide programs and services to those who may not otherwise be able to participate. If you cannot afford the full cost of a membership, you may apply for financial assistance. All Y members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of financial assistance. Assistance is based on a sliding fee scale. Please see the chart below.
