The YMCA's doors may be closed, but we are still working to meet the needs of our friends and neighbors in these uncertain times. Stay with us!For more than 100 years, the Henry County YMCA has continuously evolved to meet the changing needs of our community. And today, our community is going through unprecedented challenges. Though our doors may be closed, we are still working to meet the needs of our friends and neighbors in these uncertain times. That’s why we’re asking our members and the community at large to stay with us.

Each year, the Henry County Y reaches thousands of people across the Henry County community through programs that help everyone reach their full potential, including the Y’s Diabetes Prevention Program, preschool program, swim lessons, and LIVESTRONG at the YMCA.Since the COVID-19 situation arose, the Y shifted its focus and responded quickly as the needs of Henry County changed.

Our group exercise instructors now host a Facebook group, open to members and the general public, where they post engaging “live” classes, workout tips, and videos. Our aquatics staff is preparing suggestions to help families stay safe, and our fitness team will be sharing knowledge about wellness and well-being. Staff members are also working hard to clean, repair, and update our YMCA facility so it’s ready to go when our doors can reopen again.

The work of the YMCA is vital to our community, and the Y is in a unique position to provide these services. But we cannot continue this critical mission without support. If you are a Y member and are able, please consider continuing your membership with us. With our doors closed, your membership dollars will now help us continue this important work. For anyone who is not a Y member, please considering joining or donating today to help support our efforts. You can do so by sending an email to Directors@HenryCountyYMCA.org.

We are just as eager as everyone to reopen our doors, and when that time comes, we know it will be an exciting day, filled with celebration. Until then, we will continue to do the work that is needed to keep our children safe, our seniors connected and our community healthy. But we can’t do it alone. Please. Stay with us.

Sincerely,

Chris Williams
CEO, Henry County YMCA
