Helping Hands When Times Are Tough
Christine Ives didn’t expect to be a new mom asking for financial assistance.
She and her partner Colt had always worked. But after Colt was laid off from his job, she asked the Y for help so that her family could continue to come to the Y and her new daughter Ryder could participate in swim lessons.
With assistance from the YMCA’s Invest in Youth fund, Ryder started in a YMCA Skippers swim class at 10 months old.
Christine says, “I don’t know where I’d be today without the Y.”
