For nearly 160 years the Armed Services YMCA has been strengthening our military families due to the generosity of our valued donors. Our young and brave service members face the unique challenges of military life, and at times struggle to fully provide the basics for themselves or their families. They are voluntarily serving and sacrificing daily for our freedom. With shrinking defense budgets, troop and family programs are being cut at every military installation.
In close coordination with installation commanders, the Armed Services YMCA tailors our programming to fill the highest priority gaps with low and no-cost programs and services including child care, hospital assistance, counseling, emergency food and clothing assistance, education programs, as well as family, youth and teen programs.
We rely almost exclusively on sponsorships, private donations, and grants. Our sponsors assist with events, programs, building updates, our food pantry, and more. Join us in helping support the sacrifices of our troops and their families.
