COVID-19 Updates

April 30, 2020

Hello friends,

I hope this finds you and your loved ones safe and well. YMCA SOUTHCOAST continues to expand to work in support of our community through this extended period of Governor Bakers ‘Stay at Home’ order. Every day, your Y is hard at work. Day in and day out we witness first-hand the devastating impact that this crisis is having on individuals, on families, and on our community. We also see the bright spots; the strength of our connection to one another; the value of supporting those in need and the absolute joy that comes from caring for young people.


We are incredibly grateful to our cherished members whose support allows us to ensure that this work is possible. This act of faith is one we do not take for granted. Please know that, should the need arise, you may still choose to put your membership on hold at any time. If you are inspired by the work of your Y, and are so able, we ask you to stay with us, as we together – pivot to providing critical services to our community. Your continued support is vital.

Please visit our COVID-19 Resource page to learn more about the work your Y is doing to support our community. If you or someone you know needs support please reach out. This crisis has forced many of us to face the unimaginable. Individually we may be struggling with loss and untold hardships. Collectively, as a community, let us find strength in our togetherness and joy in our common purpose. Please know that you’re not alone. Your Y is here for you ALWAYS.

Stay healthy and strong!

Warm regards,


James Scherer

President and CEO
