The latest unprecedented turn of events propagated by the COVID-19 pandemic had made our commitment to respond to community needs more important than ever.  Your YMCA is working hard to play a role in confronting the damaging effects of this crisis under uniquely evolving circumstances.  
As you can see below, we have pivoted from conventional programming to meet urgent needs.  Our caring, innovative staff have turned branches into support systems for children of essential personnel in the form of childcare, meal delivery locations for the homebound, food program centers for thousands of out-of-school youth, communication chains for the most vulnerable, internet access to students needing school directed classwork, and crisis intervention for families in need, to name just a few. 
We have faith that we will get through this, we will do it together and we will be strong.  If you need assistance, have any questions or would like to know how we can work together to counter this unparalleled health crisis, do not hesitate to contact me. 

Blessings and be well!
