Forever In Service. For Access For All.

Y programs are here for all people. From membership to child care scholarships, no person should be turned away from the resources and opportunities they need to reach their fullest potential.  

As a nonprofit, membership and program fees only cover a portion of our operating costs. The Y needs investors who believe in our mission and are committed to creating a more equitable and affordable access for all.   

  • 62% of parents with infants and preschool age children struggle to find affordable, reliable child care nearby.
  • Almost 300,000 students in King County are in school remotely and there is a growing gap for youth who do not have equitable access to engage in distance learning, especially students of lower income, kids with diverse abilities, and immigrant families.
  • Every day, one in four children are left unsupervised after school, putting them at higher risk of negative influences, behaviors, and actions.

We need your help to ensure health and early learning are available to all.

Access for all

 "With COVID still going strong, I believe a lot of kids are feeling lost and alone. Through Child Care and Day Camp, we provide a sense of normalcy and consistency in a world that is constantly changing."

~ Chanel, Program Supervisor, School Age Child Care (she/her/hers)

Your investment in Access for All is a direct investment into the lives of kids and their families. By increasing the scholarships the Y is able to offer, we are increasing availability to the programs that encourage health, well-being, education, and social-emotional learning.
