During November the Y is honoring the sacrifice of local veterans and their families by saying thank you and supporting their health and wellness.

Starting Veterans Day, Nov. 11, through Nov. 30, 220,000-plus local military families will have complimentary access to all Y family centers, as well as programs that improve physical, emotional and family health.

And through a partnership between Y-USA and the Department of Defense, active military families (Title 10 Classification) will qualify for a pre-paid, six-month membership.

Sponsored in partnership with Dr. Phillips Charities, the Helping Our Veterans program is designed to alleviate the stress and challenges related to long deployments, post-traumatic stress and serious injuries.

Because families are also affected, we want to help promote healthy relationships and a good mental-physical balance for veterans’ spouses and children, as well.

To learn more, contact your local YMCA Family Center.
