YMCA of Natrona County: Strong Communities Campaign
The Casper Family YMCA has served Natrona County for over 50 years. We are proud to promote our mission by instituting three major focuses: Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility. Through our annual campaign we raise money that allows us to give scholarships to those who couldn't otherwise afford the membership, programs, or services we provide. We are currently on track to give over $265,000 in financial assistance this year. The YMCA is more than just a gym, we are a community.
This program funds outreach programs, providing financial assistance to ensure that the YMCA's programs and services are available to children and families in our community who need them most.
Through our scholarship programs, we are able to offer a viable option to families and individuals that need childcare or would like to have their children involved in a sport or activity that they otherwise could not afford. It is found that the likelihood of a child growing up and getting into trouble drops dramatically if they are involved in sports and activities that build positive self-esteem and self worth.
