We know firsthand how difficult it can be to find balance in life. That’s why we’re here with you every day making sure that you, your family, and your community have the resources and support needed to learn, grow, and thrive.
With a focus on developing the potential of kids, improving health, and well-being – and giving back and supporting our neighbors – your membership will not just bring about meaningful change in yourself, but in your community, too.

HOW IS THE AMOUNT OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE DETERMINED?
Your Y’s Membership Director will review your financial information and based on a sliding fee scale, determine the amount of assistance that will be offered to you. You will receive a letter regarding your assistance within one week of the Y receiving your application.
WHERE DO THE FUNDS FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE COME FROM?
This program is funded through our Annual Campaign and through the United Way.
We are committed to this simple policy: No one will be turned away due to their inability to pay for Y programs, camps or memberships. Please complete the YCares application and return to your local YMCA Southcoast branch in Dartmouth, Fall River, Mattapoisett, New Bedford, Swansea, or Wareham.
