Concerns about the impact of COVID-19 underscore the vital leadership role that our Y continues to play in the welfare of our communities across our region.
In light of the state guidelines for slowing the spread of the virus, we have redeployed our wellness facilities to provide EMERGENCY CHILD CARE for the children of health care professionals, first responders, and essential workers. We are working with hospitals, medical providers, first responders, and municipalities to repurpose our staff and facilities to provide emergency child care. These care centers will follow strict guidelines, according to the New York State Department of Health.
YMCA FAMILY SERVICES is providing counseling services for adults, children, and families in need, conducted by our licensed, expert counselors.
We have also formed the YMCA Emergency Staff Relief Fund. This fund is intended to provide team members who have been significantly impacted with access to financial resources designated to support immediate and essential needs, primarily housing, medical, food, and transportation.
The work our Y is tackling is critical and will be an essential part of our state's response, and a pathway back to wellness.
But we can't do it alone; we need your help.
Your gift will help us provide:
