Our Y Stories:

Caterina
Catarina Carneiro

Without the Y it would be really impossible. The kids love it, I know they’re safe. I am very grateful to the Annual Support Campaign.

Tina And Family

Tina didn’t know what to do. A friend told her about the Westfield Area Y financial assistance program.

Joan

The Y has changed my life in more ways than I could have imagined. I have somewhere to go and something meaningful to do.
I love being a part of the Y.

Patrick is autistic and most structured programming ends after high school. Then Patrick’s mom saw a flyer about the new Dragonfly Program.

Now I am happy to say that I am a contributor to the very financial assistance program that was there for me when I needed the help.

The Y has always been instrumental in helping me stay healthy. Now that I have gotten older, much older, the Y helps me keep what I have left in good condition.
