The YMCA conducts regular sex offender screenings on all members, participants, and guests. If a sex offender match occurs, the YMCA reserves the right to cancel membership, end program participation, and remove visitation access. The Y occasionally videotapes/photographs its members and participants in various activities. Some of these photos are used in Y marketing materials, such as ads or brochures. If you do not want your photo to be used by the Y, please step out of the shot or notify the photographer before the picture is taken.


The Henderson Family YMCA strongly encourages parents and guardians to use good judgment regarding the supervision of their children while at the YMCA. Please refer to the diagram below for quick reference and the descriptions thereunder for greater detail. Members, participants, and guests, of all ages, are expected to abide by the YMCA’s Code of Conduct. The YMCA is not a “hang out” for teens or a substitute for supervised child care. The YMCA reserves the right for staff to make discretionary decisions regarding prolonged attendance by unsupervised teens, including contacting a parent or guardian with a request to pick up the teen.

Financial Assistance

Download a copy of our Financial Assistance application

The Henderson Family YMCA provides financial assistance for those who cannot afford the full cost of a Y membership or camp programs. We use a sliding fee scale based on total household income and the number of household members. We require supporting documentation to verify household size and income, and we consider special circumstances when providing assistance.

Recipients are expected to be responsible for a percentage of the cost. Qualification for YMCA financial assistance for membership or programs is reviewed annually or when there are changes to the household income.


FAQ’s about Financial Assistance

How much assistance will be provided?

Financial Assistance funds are limited. The level of assistance depends on the extent of need and the cost of programs. We find that recipients develop a stronger sense of ownership when contributing partially to their involvement.

How Long Will The Assistance Continue?

Assistance is provided for a specific time period and will be reviewed for eligibility every year. If help is still needed when assistance is reviewed, you will be asked to re-apply. If your circumstances change before the time period is up, please let us know so we may serve others. Assistance may be discontinued by the YMCA with 2 or more occurrences involving declined drafts for monthly dues.

Why Does The YMCA Request Financial Information?

With information on income and family size, we can award assistance in a fair and consistent manner. We use these procedures to ensure that everyone receives equal consideration.

Who Will See The Financial Information?

Personal financial information is handled in a confidential manner and will be seen and reviewed only by the YMCA’s professional staff. No information is shared with any other agency or organization.
