The community has identified five focus areas as most important to County residents. One of those areas is Health and Wellness. The prevalence of a sedentary lifestyle, obesity, hypertension and diabetes are great causes for concern.
With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings Greenwood families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, thousands of youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.
But we know that some individuals and families struggle to pay the rent, put food on the table and buy clothes for their kids. They need financial assistance to come to the Y.
A mom who has been awarded financial assistance recently wrote:
In the past year I have lost weight and started down a path to a healthier life. The YMCA has helped me form new friendships and experience new activities. The employees here have inspired me along my journey with smiles, encouraging words and shared life experiences. They have also shown me how to use my new interests to inspire and connect with my daughter. Through the YMCA she was introduced to soccer and healthy exercise.
