Lancaster Family YMCA receives grant for Parenting Education Program

April 2018

At the Y, we’re committed to fostering positive family connections that not only nurture the potential of children, but help strengthen family bonds which are paramount to the success of a community.

Recently we received a $16,218 grant from the Lancaster Osteopathic Health Foundation. With those funds we will be working with COBYS Family Services to offer a new parenting education program in our early learning programs and our summer session of Power Scholars Academy.

COBYS’ mission of  –  Motivated by Christian faith, COBYS Family Services educates, supports, and empowers children and adults to reach their full potential –  is very closely aligned with the Y mission and we have partnered with them in the past to provide parenting education seminars in our Early Learning Academy.

Our collaboration with COBYS on this new program will expand how we address critical community issues and deepen our collective mission impact.
