Open Doors Financial Assistance

As a cause-driven, charitable organization, we value the practice of inclusion for all regardless of race, religion, gender, age or economic circumstance. We are deeply committed to raising the funds necessary to remove income as a barrier so that everyone in our community can participate in Y membership, programs and services that encourage positive growth, promote a healthy lifestyle, build community and support social responsibility.

If you are in need of financial assistance for Y membership, please download and complete the confidential OPEN DOORS MEMBERSHIP ASSISTANCE APPLICATION and submit it to any Y CENTER, either in person or via email to the membership director.
