Responding to the needs of our community

At the YMCA of Greater Halifax/Dartmouth, we believe in a better future for all, and that we all play our part. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, our YMCA has stepped up and responded to the needs of our community.

  • Our Centre for Immigrant Programs has been offering daily online workshops, classes, and learning opportunities for our newcomers of all ages; ensuring that they feel safe and aware of everything that’s happening in our community.
  • Our Employment Programs are offering sessions and support for those who have lost their jobs due to the pandemic.
  • Our Early Childhood Educators have developed videos and interactive ways for your child to be engaged while home and safe.
  • Our Community YMCA has been transformed into a pop-up shelter for those who need it – because everyone deserves to be healthy and safe.

All of these free and inclusive efforts that have been made are all to further our existing values here at the Y – it’s what we’ve always done.

Give today so we can continue to support our community, particularly to those most vulnerable among us.

As always, we believe in helping people thrive. At the Y, we make sure that no one is ever turned away from a YMCA experience due to an inability to pay.

The YMCA fosters belonging and connection in every community we serve.

Give in support of these efforts today!
