Financial Assistance – Membership for All

Financial Assistance

The South Shore YMCA is a non-profit, charitable organization committed to helping people to become their better selves – in spirit, mind and body.  We strive to serve the entire community by providing financial assistance for programs and membership based on individual need. This is made possible by charitable donations made to the YMCA by friends and members through our annual campaign.

Membership For All

The South Shore YMCA offers Membership for All income based membership for both individuals and families.  We understand that many in our community are facing economic challenges, and our Membership for All pricing structure is designed to help you belong.  Our Membership for All pricing structure allows you to become a member in the price level that fits your income.
