We understand that the closure of our facilities might have felt abrupt and unexpected. We know it is the right decision under these extraordinary circumstances because the health and well-being of you, our members, and our valued staff comes first, always. We are in close contact with the Monroe County Department of Public Health and County Executive to monitor the situation and are committed to reopen as soon as possible.

It’s more important than ever to live our YMCA mission of serving and strengthening our communities. And while we can’t serve you in person, you can become part of Y360, a new virtual initiative led by Ys across the country. It’s your favorite classes, our top instructors and the Y community now available at home. Learn more here. Start taking classes now.

We know you still have a lot of questions. We do, too. All of us at Y are grateful for the outpouring of support many of you have expressed. We are committed to doing everything possible to secure the future of the YMCA, and all its services, as these uncertain times continue. Closure for any length of time represents a significant threat to our non-profit organization.
We cannot express the potentially devastating impact extensive cancellations could have. We know the Y is an extension of your family and we remain honored and committed to serving you, just as we have served for the last 166 years.

Here are some things we can share with you:

  • Those currently enrolled in Before and After School and Partial Day Pre School will be credited toward future programming in the 2020 calendar year.

  • Those currently enrolled in youth sports and aquatics have two choices: you can consider your program fees a donation to the Y’s ongoing mission to serve community or take a credit toward future programming in the 2020 calendar year.

  • All members also have a choice. You can consider this month’s membership dues a donation to the Y. If this is your choice – thank you. No actions are necessary. If you would like to do something different, we are able to assist you. Member service representatives will be available by phone from 8 am to 6 pm Monday through Friday. Please call your home branch.

Whatever you choose, we thank you for your support and understanding. Please take care of yourself and one another. Our community is strong, and together, we will get through this.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
