The Y is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all.
Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our
bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections.
That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.
Every day, the Y supports kids, adults, seniors and families with programs
that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. Everything we do
helps empower communities and the “us” who live in them to thrive.
In 2017, the YMCA enrolled over 1300 participants in youth sports programs, provided childcare to 200 families, and had more than 500 children swimming during the regular season. We are determined to make the YMCA available for everyone. Last year, the YMCA granted scholarships totaling over $150,000. Through the Annual Campaign we raise funds to provide these scholarships to community members needing financial assistance.
When you donate to the Down East Family YMCA, you make the communities of Hancock County better and the “us” who live in them stronger.
