Every day, the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties strengthens our community for individuals and families with facilities and programs that teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage. Caring for the social and emotional well-being of individuals and families remains a top priority. More than ever before, we are finding ways to incorporate mental health, mindfulness, and resilience-building activities into our spaces and programs. Your generosity allows the Y to continue to provide opportunities for everyone to learn, grow, and thrive.

Meet Lisa and Eira

The pool has become Lisa’s and Eira’s retreat from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. At home, therapists and case managers fill their spaces, mobility equipment is a permanent fixture, and unsolicited opinions make their way in. As odd as it may sound, the bright, busy and bustling Aquatic Center has become an escape from the demands of their daily lives. A moment for them to be together, uninterrupted, mother and daughter. Click below to learn more about Lisa and Eira's story and how the Y made such a lasting impact in their lives.
