As Deidre enters her senior years, she’s turned to the Y to keep her healthy, connected and engaged in her community. Thanks to generous donors like you, Deidre and others like her can receive financial assistance to enjoy the benefits of the Y regardless of their financial situation.

Deidre says the Y has helped her meet her personal health goals and stay active as she gets older. She trusts her instructors to help her learn new ways to get active without injuring herself. Y staff encourage and support her as she works to maintain an active lifestyle.

“I feel grateful and safe to be at the Y. I know I’m in capable hands and am part of a community.”
