Stacie has been a YMCA participant ever since she was four. She grew up here and continues to come to the Y decades later. When her son was just one year old, she began working at member services and felt welcomed as a single mom. “The Y is an amazing place. I love the Y because from children all the way to older adults, there is a spot for everyone here. You fit in no matter what your size, what your shape, what your age. Everyone is welcome and it is so much more than a gym. You can make friends and build relationships here. You can get healthy. You can make yourself a better life by coming here. The Y helps me be the mom I want to be for my kids.”
