YMCA of Greater Cincinnati Offering Free Dues for Federal Employees on Furlough


With the Federal Government stalemate over funding several government agencies now in its 17th day, the trickle down effect to local residents is clear.

With that in mind, the YMCA Greater Cincinnati has offered those who are federal employees some respite.

"If you are a member who has lost pay, due to the shutdown, bring your government ID to your branch Welcome Center in January and we will waive one month of your dues.  We want to make sure you continue your well-being journey, especially now," said Jorge Perez, President and CEO of the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati.


His full message:

The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati appreciates your commitment to helping build a stronger community for all.  As the partial government shutdown continues, we are concerned for our friends who are federal employees. With mounting stress that comes from meeting basic needs (food, housing, utilities) while not receiving a paycheck, we want to help.  If you are a member who has lost pay, due to the shutdown, bring your government ID to your branch Welcome Center in January and we will waive one month of your dues.  We want to make sure you continue your well-being journey, especially now.

The Y is about creating a place where we can meet goals, make friends and find a place to belong; it is where we can lean in and find help when we experience unplanned challenges. Together, we are the YMCA.
