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.

Determining assistance amounts is handled in a fair and consistent manner.

Determining assistance amounts is handled in a fair and consistent manner. Applications are reviewed and assistance is determined based on verified income, number of household members and special circumstances. Every Y member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive assistance.  Y members can feel confident knowing they are part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of all people, and is committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
