Through our Scholarship Program, we can help. One of the goals of the Y is to offer its services and programs to everyone, regardless of inability to pay. Provided the resources are available, financial assistance will be offered on a sliding scale for those unable to pay full rates. Please pay us a visit or contact  Edie Young at (828)737-5500 x321 for more information.
