For 160 years, the YMCA of Greater Erie has worked to meet the critical needs of our communities. Today, the needs are more urgent than ever. We have mobilized our network, facilities, and partners to launch three specific initiatives that will be crucial in the coming weeks: childcare support for “life-sustaining” personnel of COVID-19;  hunger relief programs for kids; and Operation R.E.A.C.H. to support members in high risk groups
