Financial Assistance Program
The Y is a Charity and here for everyone. If you need financial support for YMCA membership, childcare, programs or day camp, we can help.
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 or complete this confidential online link: Online Link to YFund
- Bring your Notice of Assessment for all adults in your household to the appointment.
YMCA Child Minding Services
It’s not easy for families with young children to find the time to exercise and we want to help by providing free babysitting services for our Y members. YMCA child minding programs make it possible for families to stay active together. We provide young children a safe, welcoming environment while adults work out. Child minding is included in a membership, adult day pass and punch pass.
|Monday – Saturday Mornings||8:30 am – 12:00 pm|
