Welcoming You Back

5/28/20 update:  It's been great to welcome back members and staff over past two weeks. We are excited to announce our Phase 2 reopening plans which start June 1st.

Click here for Phase 2 guidelines, and for information on updated policies, program schedules and what to expect when you visit.

WELCOME BACK TO THE Y - Facility is open May 18th

We missed you! It’s been hard to be away from the people we care about but thank you for persevering and doing your part to stay safe.  We’ve been carefully planning to reopen our facilities and reactivate key programs in the safest manner possible so you can access the services and support you miss and need the most.  The way we’ll interact with each other will be different, but at the Y, you’ll always be able to connect with people, improve your health and wellness, nurture your children’s potential and help strengthen our community.

Your safety is our number one priority

We’re following guidance from health experts and local officials to determine the safest way to serve everyone in our community.  We’re doing everything possible to ensure our facilities meet the highest standards for hygiene and safety, and we have modified our policies and programs to facilitate safe social distancing practices.
