Healthy Living Center-
Reduce your health risks through evidence-based lifestyle behavior change programs. Members and program participants often cite the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants and staff as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being. We offer classes and programs for those dealing with chronic disease, fall prevention, blood pressure self-monitoring, Veterans services and cancer survivorship.
Programs are offered in person and in virtual formats. Programs are offered free or at a reduced cost to members. Check out the Y’s Healthy Living Center.

Healthy living is a vital part of our mission and to our well-being – and we wanted to keep that mission alive despite our current circumstances. It is important now, more than ever, that we come together as a Y movement to remain connected to each other and foster a sense of community.
We’re here to help you focus on what matters most: your health, your family and friends, and your community. Trust your Y to ensure the health and safety of all people.
Our Facility Guide details all that the Y is doing – and what you can do to create a healthy & safe environment. Some highlights:
We want all families to feel welcome at the Y. That’s why we have a Financial Assistance program to help all belong.
Perhaps its job loss, an extended illness, divorce- or any number of unforeseen situations – that cause an individual or a family to re-evaluate their involvement at the Y. It’s in these most stressful times that the Y can be most helpful in filling the gaps until they are back on their feet.
The Y provides financial assistance for Y membership and program fees to ensure that all people have equal access to Y programs and services regardless of ability to pay.
