Be Part Of A Better Us

Stories of hope happen every day at your Henry County YMCA. These opportunities are made possible by donors who give generously to the Henry County YMCA.

Christy Ragle
Us is a promise- children and adult leader

She hears her friends talking about signing their kids up for summer day camp at the Y and wishes she could register her son, too. But she is struggling just to pay next month’s rent. She doesn’t know how she’ll provide care for him during summer break but paying for day camp seems impossible.

Then she hears that there is a way he can participate.People in the community have given to the YMCA so that her son can get a scholarship to attend day camp. And suddenly this mom has more than a summer daycare option. She has hope.

Stories like this happen every day at your Henry County YMCA. Our expanding opportunities for kids to get involved with dance, swim lessons, and youth sports, mean that every child has the opportunity to grow and thrive. These opportunities are made possible by donors who give generously to the Henry County YMCA.
