The YMCA is able to offer financial assistance due to generous donations from people who believe in the values of the YMCA. Each year our YMCA provides more than $250,000 in direct financial assistance to ensure that kids, youth, adults, seniors and families can access YMCA programming.
Steps for the Financial Assistance Program:
- Call (902-752-0202) or stop by the YMCA to make an appointment.
- Bring your Notice of Assessment to the appointment.
