I am a life long member of the New Castle YMCA. My father took us all to Family night as children, which lead to myself and 2 sisters swimming on the swim team all through high school. It was our second home. I truly did not realize the positive impact the Y and its staff had on my life until I reflected back as an adult. I now serve as a volunteer. Today, I know there are kids in our community that feel this Y is their safe place. It is my hope that they too will look back and be thankful to our Y for how it benefited them, and then want to give back!
I moved here in 2006 from the Atlanta Georgia area. I was very pleased to find a YMCA that made me feel welcomed and at home right from the start. The atmosphere is wonderful and it feels like family. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff, convenient hours and a wide variety of wellness options.
The YMCA has been a part of this community for nearly 150 years and continues to make a positive impact on the kids and families of our community. The Y provides programs and services for all ages, incomes and backgrounds. What a wonderful organization with a Mission of making people's lives better.
I have been a member of the New castle Community Y for 22 years and this organization has done so many wonderful things for the community. It is involved with the Big Brothers/Big Sisters programs, the Lawrence County Schools, Cray Youth and Family Service, and more. The Y has helped so many children, adults and families be members, regardless of their ability to afford the rates, and provided them with programs that promote healthy living and youth development,. It is an asset to the community!
The Y is a great place for people from all walks of life to join together and serve the needs of our community, especially the Youth.
