YMCA of the USA, the Armed Services YMCA, and the Department of Defense launched the Armed Services YMCA and Department of Defense Outreach Initiative addresses the needs of families of deployed military personnel who live far from a military installation and require access to child development, family strengthening, and health and well-being programming.

The Outreach Initiative provides for families and individuals to receive memberships at full-facility YMCAs in their communities lasting up to 12 or 18 months depending on eligibility.

For information on Military memberships contact Andrea Heidtman via email or by calling (269) 345-9622 x190.
