Operation Compassion

Serving Our Community

We are committed to serving those in our community – East Haven, Branford, North Branford, Guilford and Madison – especially during the Covid-19 Pandemic. The Y and the Ben Callahan Sports & Fitness Complex (BC2) have come together with community partners – the Branford Rotary, Bishop’s Orchard and the Marketplace of Guilford to help maintain the health and wellness of our seniors, first responders and medical professionals in our area.

Operation Compassion is set up to provide the free delivery of healthy, fresh groceries purchased from Bishop’s Orchards and the Marketplace of Guilford to seniors, first responders and medical professionals in our service area. Operation Compassion will allow our seniors to be safe at home and our professional heroes to remain healthy and strong while serving us.

The Y needs you and your membership now even more than ever.

You’ve enjoyed all that the Y offers and brings to you and your family. With your help, we will return to the Y that we all love.

Y Temporarily Closed – For Your Health

At the Soundview Family YMCA, the safety and well-being of our members, volunteers, staff and our broader community have always been our top priority.

We have been diligently monitoring all national and local updates surrounding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation. In order to best ensure the health of our entire Y community, we are following Governor Lamont’s order to temporarily close the Soundview Family YMCA, 628 East Main Street, Branford, CT 06405 to the public effective March 16, 2020. 

During this closure, you can expect regular updates from us via email, on our website and in social media channels: Facebook

We are asking everyone to follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and take their own measures to protect themselves, including not putting themselves in situations with large crowds or where they come in close contact with others, staying home if they do not feel well, frequently washing their hands with soap and water, and covering their coughs and sneezes.

We will continue to work with the health department and local physicians to determine what other actions, if any, would be prudent on our part and when it will be safe to reopen our facilities.

Thank you for understanding as we navigate this evolving and challenging situation.


We understand that you may have questions about the temporary closure of the Soundview Family YMCA:

When will the Y open again?

We have planned a two-week closure at this time. The Y will reassess the situation and will update members regarding the status of facilities and programming.

Have any Soundview Family YMCA members tested positive for COVID-19?

No. At this time, we are not aware of any members, volunteers, staff, or participants who have tested positive for COVID-19.

What is the Y doing during the closure?

Several Y branches are working with the State of Connecticut, area hospitals and emergency personnel to provide child care services to their families.

During this time, we will be taking the opportunity to deep clean our facility by sterilizing and sanitizing all equipment, rooms and pool areas.

We will be sharing some of your favorite group exercise classes in video format and programs from our Y Personal Trainers no later than Wednesday, March 18.

For updates please visit our website at, follow us on our Facebook page, or email us at

What about my membership?
We know that you will not be able to use the Y like you did before. Therefore, we will NOT draft membership dues on the 1st or 15th if the YMCA is not open. There is no need to put your membership on hold. Once we reopen, we will again draft per our policy on the 1st or 15th depending on your schedule.

What can I do to help the YMCA continue to help our community?
Keep your membership active. If you would, we’d ask that you please email or call the Soundview Family YMCA at or 203 481 9622 to CONTINUE your membership. This will allow us to continue to support our neighbors who are struggling.

How can I donate?

Our community is resilient but will look to the YMCA as a safety net. Please consider helping by making a donation to our 2020 Annual Campaign. Click Here to Support the Soundview Family YMCA
