Another vitally important part of membership are the final two words of our mission: “for all.” We believe that the opportunity to build healthy spirit, mind and body is an opportunity that must be available to everyone. We are committed to providing Y Assistance to all in need so that, together, we can all grow stronger. Our policy is to welcome all, regardless of financial reasons.

To be considered for Y Assistance, visit the Welcome Center at your local branch and bring all documents requested. Our Membership Leaders will review your paperwork and let you know what rate you qualify for. You may join at that time or any time within six months of your approval. Membership dues may be paid on the 1st or 15th of the month via automatic draft and will be pro-rated based on the timing of your join date.
