The Y SHould be a home for everyone
Welcome to all-financial assistance
We feel the Y should be Accessible for all!
With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Forest City Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. The Y welcomes all who wish to participate and believes that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their ability to pay. Through our financial assistance program, the Forest City Y provides assistance to youth, families and adults based on individual needs and circumstances. The program is funded by generous donors who support our cause.
