Emergency Child Care During COVID-19

Right now, the YMCA is working with more than 20 local school districts to provide emergency child care to essential workers, so that they can continue to respond to the health crisis in our community. This program would not be possible without the generous support of local school districts, community donations, and funding from the Health Foundation of Western and Central New York and the Western New York COVID-19 Community Response Fund.

Emergency child care is available for free to essential workers 7:00 am – 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. To enroll your child, please contact your nearest YMCA branch:
