Free Workshops 
Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y. We are a place where they can find respite from social, economic and educational challenges, and learn how to overcome them. Through the different workshops offered, we have a fundamental desire to provide opportunities for every family to build stronger bonds, achieve greater balance in their lives, and become more engaged with their communities.
All workshops are held at the Y and are open to the public.  Child care is provided free of charge for workshop participants.  For more information, please contact Holly at 263-9996.
