Adults need help finding balance in life and motivation in managing their health. Children need safe environments where they’re nurtured and inspired to reach their full potential. Seniors need a place where they can be active and find camaraderie. And, families need opportunities and places to connect and strengthen relationships with one another.
The branches of the Channel Islands YMCA – a leading nonprofit that strengthens community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility – offers this support and more, and during the annual membership campaign people of all ages can experience all the Y has to offer with a free one-week trial membership.
“At the Y, you’re not only part of an organization, but part of a community and a cause that benefits you and your neighbors,” says Sal Cisneros President and CEO of the seven branch association. “Here, a membership means more – it’s an opportunity to feel good while being part of a cause that helps make positive changes in people’s lives.”
The staff of the Channel Islands YMCAs are seeking to foster and support sustained relationships with individuals and families who want to experience greater total health and well-being. The power of a supportive community can be instrumental in achieving these goals.
No contracts are required at the Y and the YMCA Open Doors financial assistance program makes reaching these goals possible for everyone, including residents who are struggling to afford a healthy lifestyle.
The Channel Islands YMCA facilities located in Camarillo, Lompoc, Montecito, Santa Barbara, Santa Ynez and Ventura will hold a special Open House celebration January 7th celebrating 125 years of service to the community. The free event will offer something for everyone including a variety of classes, fun and educational events. Visit ciymca.org or contact your neighborhood Y for details.
