Securing The Future
The YMCA of Barry County needs to develop a more stable funding base in order to continue to provide mission critical programming for the children and families of Barry County. Financial support from traditional funding sources has declined, both in actual dollars and as a percentage of operating expenses, due to the severe impact of current economic conditions. Given that this situation is not likely to significantly improve in the foreseeable future, it is vital that we act to ensure the continued availability of Y services to children and families; providing opportunities to participate in programs that develop self-confidence, promote a greater interest in learning and provide a basis for making smarter life choices. The need for these programs has never been greater and will only increase.
