Dear Monroe Family YMCA Member,  

As announced this morning, the YMCA of Greater Rochester and The Center for Youth are working in partnership under a memorandum of understanding agreement whereby the YMCA will transfer this building for $1 to The Center for Youth. Transfer of this building is due to be complete in the coming months. 

Passport Membership grants you access to all YMCA of Greater Rochester facilities. If you are not a current Passport Member, your membership will temporarily be converted to a Passport Membership for 12 months. Should you have any questions related to your membership, please contact  

We know this news may come as a surprise and may be upsetting to you. We understand. There is never a good time to close a chapter in our history. However, being able to transition this building to another vital community nonprofit ensures its legacy within the City. And that is the Y’s mission at work: supporting community for all any way possible – even if that means we step aside. 

We look forward to continuing to serve you and create new memories with you. Many staff members from the Monroe Family Branch have been redeployed to positions within the YMCA of Greater Rochester. These staff members look forward to acquainting you to other branches throughout the Association.
If you wish to contact me directly, please do so. I’m happy to speak to you. Thank you again for your support of, and dedication to, the YMCA of Greater Rochester. 
Chief Operating Officer
