Lancaster Family YMCA Now Offers Income-Based Membership to Ensure All Have Access

The Lancaster Family YMCA is committed to ensuring that everyone in our community has access to the resources and support that will help them to learn, grow and thrive. That’s why the organization began offering income-based membership earlier this month.

Income-based memberships are available to any member of the community who meets the eligibility requirements and wishes to become a member of the Lancaster Family YMCA. To apply for an income-based membership the gross household income is $70,000 or less for family membership and for individual membership, $40,000 or less.

While the YMCA has always had financial assistance available, income-based membership simplifies the process and provides a sliding fee scale.

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together and when everyone has access to the support and resources they need to reach their full potential. By offering income-based membership, we’ve made a Y membership available to everyone in our community.
– Denise L. Day, President and CEO of the Lancaster Family YMCA
