The YMCA served as an important resource for Nina and her family for many years. From afterschool and summer camp programs to fitness and wellness classes, Nina says she’s grateful for her Y experience. “The Y gave me and my child positive energy and a safe environment at all times,” she says. “The Y was there for us when I had work and made it possible for my daughter to go to Camp Weona. She met so many positive people who made a great impact on her life.”

As a community-based organization, the Y does not turn anyone away due to an inability to pay. Nina says she’s thankful for the Y’s financial assistance program, which allowed her and her family to take part in YMCA programs and membership. “It was so very important,” she says. “If it wasn’t for the financial help our lives would have been tough.”
