As the weather turns chilly and the leaves start to change, it’s a great time to create family

We believe everyone deserves a Y, so the Kirk Family YMCA offers financial assistance to individuals and families who might otherwise not be able to afford membership or program fees. Ask a staff member about financial assistance. It’s easy to apply and the Y does everything it can to make the Y a place for all.

spooky fun and games, hay rides, hot cocoa, a movie on the lawn (weather permitting) and a glow in the dark pumpkin patch. Come as you

As a nonprofit, the Y is able to strengthen community because of the dedicated youth, families and individuals who share our passion and make the Y part of their lives. They give their time, resources and talents—every day and in hundreds of ways—because they know they can improve the lives of others while enhancing their own through the Y. Well-being for many of our neighbors is all too frequently limited by income or social isolation. In low-income communities, the Y offers opportunities for every child, teen or adult to achieve his or her potential regardless of economic status. With your help, the Y can continue to expand programming and outreach where it is needed most. Please consider volunteering your time, making a contribution, or sharing your story of the Y’s impact.
