Membership Benefits

Put us to the test! We feel that our facilities, programs and caring staff are the best you’ll find. So, we’re willing to back our membership with a 30-day money back guarantee.

Financial Aid Scholarship Program Each year the YMCA provides membership to thousands of children, adults and families who aren’t able to afford the full rates. We understand that for many working families in the Merrimack Valley, membership is just out of their financial reach. The program is an initiative that enables all individuals and families to become members of the YMCA. Financial Assistance is an income based membership that is possible thanks to the many generous donors who support the YMCA’s Reach Out for Youth Campaign. At the Y, everyone is welcome. Our application process is easy and, most importantly, completely confidential. Financial assistance applications are available at the Welcome Center or online at www.mvymca.org.

Volunteers

Annual Campaign & Special Events Keeping the Y accessible to everyone The YMCA’s ‘Annual Campaign’ annual appeal and special events fundraising represent the vehicles through which charitable dollars are raised each year. Our annual campaign ensures that no one is denied the opportunity to share in the YMCA experience due to an inability to pay. The YMCA’s charitable efforts provide the funding needed to: • Offer financial assistance for children and families who would not otherwise be able to participate in YMCA programs and services. • Provide funding to support camping experiences for low income youth within the Merrimack Valley, southern New Hampshire and throughout the northeast region. • Subsidize outreach programs at all branches that serve specific needs and are not fully supported by fees. Some examples include: Junior and Teen Achievers, Youth and Government, Teen Leaders, youth sports and family programming. • Expand and develop new programmatic initiatives designed to meet community needs. • Provide health, wellness and support for the 73 homeless or near homeless men residing in the Single Room Occupancy housing at the Lawrence YMCA.

Both locally and across the globe, the YMCA was founded by volunteers. On an annual basis our Y has engaged more than 800 people of all ages and interests who have contributed more than 45,000 hours to help the Merrimack Valley YMCA accomplish our mission. Their leadership, vision and passion enabled the Y to positively impact the lives of thousands of people. Volunteers are the core of our organization, providing the support we need to make these programs accessible to all. You can find our volunteers everywhere – on the youth sports field coaching, raising funds to help the Y offer more scholarships and programming, and serving on our boards and committees to help us keep our quality up or mentoring our youth and teens.

• Make health and wellness opportunities accessible to everyone.

Military Outreach

helping those who serve us all Through a national partnership with the Armed Services YMCA and Department of Defense that began in 2008, our YMCA gives military families access to youth development, family strengthening, and health and well-being programs. YMCA membership costs may be underwritten by the Department of Defense outreach initiative that is administered through Military OneSource, an information and referral service for military families. Program details and participation requirements are available at our YMCA Welcome Centers.

Last year, we delivered more than $3 million of services to needy and deserving children, adults and families. Please consider making a gift to our campaign. Contact the Development Office for more information at 978-725-6681.

YMCA Housing a Safe Haven

The Lawrence YMCA’s Residential Program is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development subsidized program that offers affordable living and supportive services to low-income single men between the ages of 18 and 80. The YMCA’s Single Room Occupancy (SRO) operates using a waiting list maintained by the Lawrence Housing Authority. Some benefits offered through this program for residents include; case management assistance, supportive services, access to sobriety groups and free classes in English, computers and General Education Development (GED). The YMCA’s SRO is affordable and has many wonderful benefits. It’s a great place to build a new life with people who care.
