We believe that the Treasure Coast is stronger when everyone in the community feels welcome and we can all work together for the common good.

Welcoming Week, founded by Welcoming America, is an annual celebration bringing together thousands of people and hundreds of local events that celebrate the contributions of immigrants and refugees and the role communities play to foster greater welcome. Welcoming Week is Sept. 13-22 across the country and now expanding to other parts of the world.

Welcoming America is leading a movement of inclusive communities becoming more prosperous by making everyone who lives there feel like they belong. Welcoming America believes that all people, including immigrants, are valued contributors and vital to the success of both our communities and our shared future. www.welcomingamerica.org.

Here at the YMCA of the Treasure Coast, we welcome you everyday, all year long.  This year we are celebrating our YMCA families in two ways and we hope that you will be a part!

The Y is one of the nation’s leading nonprofits strengthening communities through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Across the U.S., 2,700 Ys engage 22 million men, women and children – regardless of age, income or background – to nurture the potential of children and teens, improve the nation’s health and well-being, and provide opportunities to give back and support neighbors. Anchored in more than 10,000 communities, the Y has the long-standing relationships and physical presence not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change. ymca.net

Family Picture Wall

Show us that you are a part of our Y Family and email your family’s picture to our Membership Director Ashley Brown.  While each of our families may look different, we are all one big family at the Y and we are proud that you are a part!  We will be displaying our Family pictures in our branches through the month of September.

Eating Dinner as a Family

YMCA Childcare families – How often do you eat dinner as a family?? We invite you to bring your dinner to the Y on Friday 9/20, and we will dine together as one big family! We will also play the movie HOME if you would like to stick around after dinner. Just a casual way to get to know each other, and welcome our new childcare families to the program!
