OPEN DOORS PROGRAM
The Rochester Area Family YMCA raises money annually through our Strong Kids Campaign to provide membership and program opportunities to those who could not afford them otherwise. The Open Doors Program offers scholarships based on your current household income and your financial situation.
All applicants will still be responsible for a portion of their membership dues and program fees, based on our sliding-fee scale. Applications are available here on our website or at the Welcome Center. The application process can take approximately two weeks to be approved. It is the applicant’s responsibility to contact the Y to see if they application has been approved. Due to the high demand for scholarships, we cannot contact every individual that is approved. Feel free to call the Welcome Center at 287-2260 x 354 for an update on the status of your application. For specific questions, please feel free to contact our Open Doors Coordinator, Ashley Anderson, for more specific questions about your application.
