I really miss the Y. Please do not refund any part of my prepaid membership.  I can only hope others continue to pay their Y membership, and consider a donation, because what you do at the Y is so important in our community. ~ Phyllis Fitzpatrick, Fairfield Y Member


Thank you for the consideration that you are extending your Y members, regarding our monthly membership dues. However, we are requesting that you charge the account as you normally would.   My husband and I believe that we have a social responsibility to continue supporting organizations that are an important part of building stronger communities.  Part of that social responsibility pact includes people, like us, who readily have the financial resources to keep the economy going should be spending that money, especially in the community that we call home. Please let us know if you will be holding any fundraisers in the future so that we may help in other ways. ~Anna Michele Young- Torello, Hamden/North Y Member


A client, currently living in a rehabilitation center recently contacted the Alpha Community Services YMCA team and shared that he “can’t wait to get back home, his home for 24 years. The Crescent was made possible by the YMCA and I am so thankful for them. The Y and that building saved my life, and the people and the staff have been absolutely amazing. It’s truly been a blessing.” ~John G., Alpha Community Services YMCA
