If you are living on a fixed or limited income, your Y membership and programs fees may cost you less through the Y Scholarship program. Assistance is determined on level of income, family size, and circumstances.
Who is a Y Scholarship for?
It’s for the single-parent who needs caring and safe after school care so her children won’t go home to an empty and unsupervised house…
It’s for a senior citizen on a fixed income who would like to continue on the road to better health by participating in Water Fitness classes…
It’s for a teen that wants to have fun but needs positive role models and constructive leisure time activities…
It’s for the family that has found itself in tough economic times and needs a support system and family enriching programs…
It’s for the adult looking to relieve the stress of daily life and work by participating in a variety of exercise options…
IT MAY BE FOR YOU!!!

The Y Scholarship Assistance Policy

While participants are expected to pay their fair share, applicants may be eligible for assistance.
Completion of a scholarship application and proof of income as well as meeting requirements for child care assistance is required as outlined in the application.
*In order to qualify for Childcare assistance, both parents must be working.*
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
