Financial Assistance

The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening the community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose, and each other. At the Henderson Family YMCA, we believe that everyone—no matter who they are or where they’re from—deserves the opportunity and the resources necessary to reach their full potential. We provide direct financial assistance to our neighbors in need—made possible through the generosity of our Y’s Annual Campaign donors and proceeds from special fundraising events. The Y’s Financial Assistance program is available to anyone who meets the financial guidelines of the program, lives or works in our service area, and has the desire to participate in YMCA programs or services.
