we are stronger together!
At the YMCA of Southern Arizona, everything we do is guided by our Mission and our commitment to serve and support the community. When you belong to the Y, you’re not only a member of a health and wellness facility, you’re a member of an organization dedicated to strengthening our community. In difficult times, our YMCA pivots in response to community needs and finds ways to use our resources to offer solutions.
Throughout the COVID-19 crisis, we’ve continued to serve the most critical needs in our community. With your support, you have allowed the Y to:
- Provide emergency child care and financial assistance to 536 individuals while their parents or caregivers provided critical services to our community.
- Serve more than 8,000 meals to children in emergency child care; ensuring proper nutrition for all.
- Made over 1,760 Senior Wellness Calls to ensure this at-risk population stays connected and active.
- Created a Virtual Y providing online family and wellness programming for all to enjoy from the comfort of their home.
We cannot do this without your support! By continuing to be a part of our Y through a your membership, you’re helping us deploy and expand these needed resources and services.
We are continuing to provide child care options for families this summer through Summer Enrichment Camp and Early Childhood Programming. Our programs focus on keeping children engaged in a fun environment with hands-on learning to help each child learn, grow, and thrive.
We are continuing our partnership with other agencies to help provide breakfast, lunch and snacks to all the children in our summer enrichment camp this summer.
With recent school closures, families are adjusting to a new normal. It can be overwhelming to contemplate what to do with new-found time. We are continuing to post weekly educational and fun resources for parents and children to enjoy together.
We are continuing to share wellness resources and provide virtual classes to keep our community safely connected, active and healthy in spirit, mind and body.
