Military personnel on leave shall be welcomed into the Parkview Huntington Family YMCA on a day-to-day basis at no charge for a period of up to two weeks. Leave paperwork must be presented along with a valid picture I.D. card.
A new $31 million initiative gives military families access to memberships and programs at area YMCAs and across the country.
A partnership between the United States Department of Defense (DoD) and the Armed Services YMCA is giving families of active military personnel FREE access to youth development, family strengthening, and health and well-being programs at local YMCAs across the country. Through the $31 million initiative, membership fees for up to 18 months will be funded by the DoD.
Those eligible for the program include:
Families of joint deployed National Guard and Reserves
Active duty families assigned to newly established joint bases created by the Base Realignment and Closure process
Active duty independent duty station personnel
Relocated spouses and family members of deployed active duty personnel
The initiative will fund the cost of memberships only. Any YMCA fee-based activities will not be included. As always, with the YMCA, scholarships are available for all programs and services.
