With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
Here at the Y, we are proud to turn no one away for an inability to pay. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we provide financial assistance to children, adults and families from our community, allowing them to benefit from all our Y has to offer!
LAST YEAR, WE AWARDED OVER $370,000
STRENGTHENING THE COMMUNITY WE LOVE
Whenever our community is faced with a crisis and whenever we see a neighbor who needs support, the Y stands ready to help with open arms.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created an isolation and inactivity crisis for older adults; tremendous challenges for parents returning to in-person work, as child care wait lists are longer than they have ever been; and a growing mental health crisis facing children.
With your help, we can ensure all members of our community have access to all the Y has to offer, regardless of their ability to pay.
Thank you for your commitment to the Greater Scranton YMCA.
Today, we’re asking for your support of our 2022 Annual Support Campaign so we can strengthen our community and continue supporting our neighbors.
“We are forever grateful to receive a scholarship for our son to attend the Early Learning Program while we work. Child care cost can be so costly, making parents choose between work and childcare. It is a decision we were faced with recently, trying to decide if going back to teach and using my entire check on daycare is really worth it. I was informed about the GSYMCA scholarships and immediately applied. Receiving this has kept students with a teacher, my son to be able to socialize and engage with peers his age, all while knowing he is in good care.” – Early Learning Center Parent
Gifts from our community partners made this story possible. Together, we can provide a Y membership for those struggling with chronic disease; child care for parents who need to go to work; a safe, nurturing space for kids to go before and after school; and outreach to seniors who are feeling isolated. Because strong communities are built by people who care about one another.
