True to our mission of putting Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, each year the YMCA of Avery County provides hundreds of free or reduces memeberships to low income families. Our Outreach programs are designed to serve all ages. We provide healthy living programs to the elderly to help them maintain independent living. We work with high-risk school children providing them with another caring adult in their lives and guide them toward healthy habits. We work with Pre-K children to for drowing prevention and do a Yoga class at daycares to introduce them to active living. We collaborate with other local agencies and organizations to provide a wide-array of support to those who most need us.
