We’re in this together
We deeply appreciate your understanding and patience as we adjust to the challenging circumstances COVID-19 has presented to our Y and our community. We are constantly working to keep our members, participants, volunteers, and staff safe while still delivering on our promise to support our most vulnerable kids and families. This has been a difficult balance to strike, but with your help, we can sustain these crucial efforts. At YMCA Cape Cod, everything we do is guided by our commitment to community needs. Right now, those needs have never been greater.
EMERGENCY CHILD CARE
Our sites have been selected by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC) and Governor Baker’s office to offer emergency child care services to first responders, healthcare workers, essential personnel, and vulnerable populations. We’re privileged to be able to offer this type of service to the people who are keeping our state running in a time of crisis.
