A Strong YMCA Family
In an effort to retain, with dignity, YMCA members who have been laid off, we have established a Strong YMCA Family Program. We are here to stand by our members during good times and bad, and the Strong YMCA Family will help members maintain their YMCA membership while they are temporarily out of work. Any YMCA member in good standing who loses his/her job through layoff, furlough or cut back or any member who has been called to active duty as reserve military personnel may be awarded a continuation of their existing membership at no cost. Contact the Membership office for more information or assistance with the Strong YMCA Family Program.
