Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Because our community is less than 20,000 the Y serves as a hub in our city. In 2011 the Paris-Bourbon County YMCA will provide 850 children, adults and families with financial assistance towards memberships, services and programs. And since no one is turned away for their inability to pay, we ask that you help us continue this cause.
