SouTH SHorE YMCA LoCATIoNS germantown Neighborhood Center Since 1982, the Germantown Neighborhood Center (GNC) has been providing critical support services, needed resources, programs and workshops to the youth and families of the Germantown and neighboring communities of Quincy. Located within one of Quincy’s largest public housing developments, the GNC serves a community of mostly low-income, single-parent households and works with support and guidance from the South Shore YMCA to identify and develop strategies to address community needs. Our youth programs give kids a safe environment where they can grow and learn positive values that they will carry with for a lifetime. Women’s programs are designed to get women out of the house and build relationships with other women who are in the same situation. Childcare and dinner are often provided. Women are encouraged to bring the whole family while mom engages in skill-building workshops with other women. Our Family Lifelong Learning programs encourage literacy and educational achievement through our GED programs, or Teen Mentoring programs. Our food pantry serves residents all over the City of Quincy with food assistance. The Holiday Assistance program lifts a burden off the shoulders of many families during a time that is even more difficult financially. We are constantly trying to raise more money, add more programs, and do all that we can to help. Our programs and services work toward giving community members the skills, confidence, and resources to take action and improve their lives.

“For my husband the Y has been a life-changing experience. Unemployment can be hard on a family, especially if you are actively looking for work. The Y has been a stress reliever for my husband and our entire family.” You may know of people in our community whose experiences are similar. Having an impact like this is one reason that the South Shore YMCA is investing in a new facility in Quincy. The new Y will provide an expanded Early Learning Center where working families can have peace of mind that their children are safe and thriving, a health & well-being center for all ages, teen programming, and vibrant spaces where families can participate together in healthy activities. The Y’s collaborations with other health care providers will make this facility a focal point for community well-being.

Construction has begun, and we expect to complete the new facility by August of 2013. Follow the progress on our website and learn how you can help the Y lead the way in youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Our Capital Campaign Community Phase began on October 1st and will provide opportunities for naming places within the building and outside on the grounds.
