June 19 |Therapy Pool: Please note that our Therapy Pool is only operating for Early Years Swim today. We will update members as soon as we have it functioning for warm and deep warm swims as well. Thank you for your patience and understanding. 

I would like to thank Strong Kids and all of its many supporters on behalf of myself and my son. 

My son is 3 years old and has attended the YMCA for about a year and a half. The Strong Kids program has helped make this possible. As a mother on social assistance, I am working to make a better life for my family. I have faced many struggles within the past year, such as bankruptcy, debt and unemployment. Without Y Strong Kids I would not have been able to start on a path to better myself and my son. 

My son would have attended a child care that he did not like and where I did not feel safe sending him. I feel privileged that the YMCA has a program that helps beyond what help is already being provided. 

I would not be where I am today without all of this support. I would not be making a difference in my life or motivating others to do the same. I am currently saving as much as I can to go towards education for my son and I. 

I hope that in the future, Y Strong Kids will be able to give support to others just like it is for me.
