The Mattoon Area Family YMCA is committed to helping ALL people realize their full potential and grow in spirit, mind, and body. The Y is here to serve people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and incomes. We believe that our programs and services should be available to everyone. Membership for All is a sliding fee scale that is designed to help individuals and families take advantage of everything the Y has to offer.
Membership for All provides assistance to youth, adults, and families based on individual needs and circumstances. Assistance can be used for any membership level, or for most programs such as swim lessons and youth sports. This assistance is made possible through the hard work and generosity of our volunteers and donors through our Annual Campaign.
All Y members receive the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they are receiving assistance. Y members can feel great knowing that they are involved in an organization that cares greatly for the health and well-being of all people. At the YMCA, we are committed to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. The Y offers more than programs and services, we ensure that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.
