Thank you for being a part of your Family Y! We want to notify you that changes are on the horizon for our Riverfront YMCA.
Historically, the Downtown Y has operated at a deficit since its reopening at the original Broad Street location. When we moved the Y to the current Riverfront Y location, it continued to operate at a loss. In 2020, COVID hit and, like many other businesses and organizations that have suffered during the past two years, our YMCA association was also hit hard. Fortunately, revenue has steadily increased over the last six months at multiple locations, but our Riverfront Y has continued operating at a significant loss. For the reasons stated, it is with sincere regret to tell you that as of November 30, 2021, we will close our Riverfront YMCA.
The other 9 YMCA locations throughout the CSRA will remain open and continue providing you a place to reach your health and fitness goals. You can find our branch locations and amenities here.
We will continue to serve the Downtown district through our outreach programs, such as A Place to Dream, Y on the Fly and Cheryl’s Kitchen Food Program. We appreciate your loyal support, and we look forward to continuing our mission throughout the CSRA.
