In partnership with the Armed Services YMCA, the Y is proud to offer memberships and respite child care services to eligible military families and personnel through the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Military Outreach Initiative.

The Armed Services YMCA has partnered with YMCAs, as well as national and independent fitness centers nationwide, to offer service members and their families free access to fitness centers and respite child care services*. The Military Outreach Initiative gives service members and military families extra support and access to vital resources that promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. It’s another way of giving back to those who dedicate themselves to serving our country.
