Asa member of the region’s leading non profit, you support more than just your neighborhood gym. While we do provide safe places for people of all ages to exercise and be well, we also provide critical support to youth through behavioral & mental health counseling, hunger & housing programs, and equity & justice initiatives.

In this week’s member news, we’re asking for your help to spread the word about these safety programs, including our newest safety protocols and ways to support your neighbors with rent relief. For more information about all critical support programs, please visit our Social Impact Center and Equity and Justice Center of Excellence.
