Faith in the Y

“If it wasn’t for the YMCA’s financial aid, I’d never see my daughter,” says Faith, mother of Ellen (7) and Cadence (3). Ellen is provided discounted financial assistance for the Y’s before and after school program, allowing her mother to keep her first-shift job.

The PEORIA YMCA provided $94,700 in free programs and financial assistance last year to families like Faith & Ellen. Throughout the month of May, the Y will hold its annual fundraising campaign to ensure that everyone in the community has access to vital programs and resources that support youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

When you give to the Y, your gift helps build healthy, connected and secure children with the potential to do anything.
