As the holiday season approaches many children struggle to find a place to belong.

Children like Maddy, who at the age of 6 lost her mother to cancer, leaving her father Peter faced with the sudden challenges of being a single parent without childcare, or a safe place for his young daughter to thrive. Peter turned to the YMCA for financial support so he could afford care and return to work knowing that Maddy had a safe place to belong as she worked through the trauma that losing your mother can bring.

It was only due to the generosity of community members like you, and the YMCA’s Financial Assistance Program that Maddy's father was able to give her some of her childhood back.  A place where Maddy could laugh and play again.

This holiday season please support the YMCA’s Financial Assistance Program. 100% of your donation will help local low-income children and families access a supportive community, and find the emotional, physical, and mental support they need to thrive.
