For a Better Future. For A Better Us.

Emergency Response Fund

The Y has responded to community crises for more than 145 years. During this critical time, we are helping vulnerable families with our emergency childcare program. Help us serve those in need now and long into the future.


The YMCA of Northern Colorado strengthens the foundations of community. With the help of donors, thousands of children and adults have access to opportunities that promote youth development, nurture healthy lifestyles and cultivate a sense of social responsibility. 

In 2018, the Y provided around $800,000 in financial assistance to families and individuals in need. Because of these funds, the Y is able to give children access to safe spaces and early childhood education, offer parents a support system and ensure seniors have a community connection and programs that prevent chronic disease.

The need continues. And we need your help. Donate today. For more information, contact

“We offer assistance to families so children can come to school and have a safe place and academic support. Parents can go to work knowing they have a great place for their kids.”

—Lisa, YMCA Staff Member
