At the Y, everyone is welcome! It is our commitment to the community that no one is turned away due to their inability to pay.The Open Door program reduces membership and/or program fees to keep that commitment. All membership grants will be granted for one year. Members have the option to pay their membership balance in full at the time of joining or set up monthly auto draft payments.
Child care grants are valid for 30 days from enrollment. After 30 days, we ask that families participating in child care programs apply for the Child Care Development Fund or On My Way Pre K. Their grant will remain active if the family is not approved for additional assistance.
Grants are awarded based on financial need; however, personal stories and why you are pursuing assistance is taken into consideration.
In order to apply for the Open Door Grant you will need to fill out the Open Door Grant application and return it to the Y with a copy of your most recent income taxes or your last two pay stubs. If you receive public assistance (food stamps, disability, etc.) you will automatically qualify for a 50% discount. If you would like to see if you qualify for more than 50% we will need your most recent tax return or pay stubs.
