Income-Based Membership & Financial Assistance

The Lancaster Family YMCA is a nonprofit organization committed to strengthening community and providing all in our community with the resources and support they need to learn, grow and thrive. We serve people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities and incomes and no one is ever turned away due to an inability to pay. To ensure that all have access, we provide income-based membership and financial assistance for programs. See additional ways to save on your YMCA membership at the Lancaster Family YMCA.
