As a supporter of the Warren County YMCA, you know that the Y is a nonprofit like no other. You see firsthand the impact we have on the children, adults and families who walk through our doors. For more than 150 years, we’ve been listening and responding to the needs of our communities—and we continue to address critical needs with more than 25,000 different folks coming through our door each year. What we are most proud of is that the Y is for everyone. Regardless of age, background or financial ability, the Y reaches out to and nurtures the potential of all people. We count on the generosity of our neighbors to help us continue this life-changing work. While we are grateful to those who have supported us in the past, we know we must engage more people in the Y’s cause in order to expand our work for generations to come. Over the past 10 years, we have laid the groundwork for this revitalization campaign that targets all of Warren County, by closely observing and then addressing the needs of the people of this area. We can inspire more people to take action through strengthening and renewing our YMCA. Through future programs, we can reach and enrich more children, adults and families. There is an incredible opportunity before us, and we are in a great position, as a Keystone, to take advantage of it. Now it’s up to us. W are excited, because we know that when we work together, as folks have for more than150 years, we can accomplish amazing things.
Since the services of the YMCA includes every age, social economic condition, and background, it is a challenge to tell a succinct story. Should we tell of the programs for special needs folks, or of a program providing financial aid for membership to anyone struggling to get by and a free membership to every 7th Grader, or of the programs for seniors or for folks surviving cancer. Maybe we should highlight the YMCA’s family programs, what about the new YMCA initiative to teach every child in Warren County to swim? This is YOUR YMCA.
During the three years of our Capital Campaign, we have completed the following:
- new roof on our facility
- HVAC for locker rooms and weight room
- LED conversion of most of the lights - still ongoing for remainder of lights
- new Cycle Studio
- 2 new childcare rooms
- created a Functional Fitness room
- new Group Exercise room
- purchased new equipment for the Fitness room
- replaced cabinets and installed sinks in existing childcare rooms
- replaced carpet in women's health locker room
- installed new blinds in program rooms 1-4, plus Activity Room
- installed a state of the art timing system in the pool area
- opened a branch in Youngsville
We want to insure that this Keystone is strong, vital, and serving thousands into the next 150 years and we need you to help make this happen. Future renovation plans include updating our alcove, repacing the outside siding, and replacing the men's health sauna. Your donations will be helpful in completing the remainder of our projects and supporting our free programs to insure that our YMCA is a safe clean building for the future generations.
Some of our donations help the following programs:
* Financial Aid to those families who need help with membership fees and program fees
* Rainbow Swim - for those with mental and physical challenges
* LiveStrong at the Y - for cancer survivors and their families
* Your Life Matters - for fitness recovery program for substance abuse
