Life Skills

Gaining independence helps individuals fulfill and accomplish their dreams. In our Life Skills classes, participants learn important skills such as money management, discover employment opportunities, and many other tools necessary for independent living. Our step-by-step cooking class teaches kitchen and food prep safety while producing healthy meals.


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE IS AVAILABLE. At the Y, no one is denied service due to the inability to pay. Funds for Financial Assistance are provided through the YMCA’s Annual Giving Campaign. Learn more here!

If you are pre-qualified for Financial Assistance, please note that some of our programs have minimum fees in order to cover costs of materials and supplies. This fee may be higher depending on your amount of assistance.

A SAFE PLACE FOR ALL. Keep up-to-date with our current Safety Policies.
