CLOSURE UPDATE: Per mandate from Governor Polis, and because it is the right thing to do, our facilities are closed. Check here for COVID-19 updates. We are running emergency childcare only for families who have no other choice.


Help us provide emergency relief to our community

During this critical time, the YMCA of Northern Colorado is stepping up for those who need it most. We are providing emergency childcare for families who have no other choice: for hourly workers, for staff who are essential during this time of crisis, for medical personnel and first responders. Many of the parents utilizing our Emergency Childcare are hourly workers, cannot work from home and live paycheck to paycheck.

If they do not have care for their children, they do not work. If they do not work, our communities suffer and their families struggle.

Since our inception in 1874, the YMCA of Northern Colorado has looked challenge in the face. We have stepped up to serve as a Red Cross shelter during fires and floods. Every day, we respond to food inequality issues and the challenges of low-income families and individuals. We’re always here for those who need us the most.

But we need your help. Donate below to help us now and long into the future. Your gift also ensures that once this crisis is over, the Y is still able to provide life-changing and life-saving programs, services and community to our neighbors in need. 

If you have any questions about your donation, please contact our Development Team at If you are in need of childcare, please visit our Emergency Childcare program.
