The Y’s mission work is to provide financial assistance to those who need support in order to be able to participate in membership and programs at the Y. The Y welcomes all who wish to participate and believe that no one should be denied access to the Y based on their income.
Through our Scholarship Program, the SHAWNEE FAMILY YMCA provides assistance to youth, adults and families based on their individual needs and circumstances. With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the SHAWNEE FAMILY YMCA believes that every individual should have access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.

Determining assistance amounts is handled by the Y in a fair and consistent manner. Every Y member receives the same membership benefits, regardless of whether or not they receive a scholarship. Y members can feel confident knowing that they are a part of an organization that cares greatly for the well-being of all people, and is committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
