Two thumbs up for YMCAs everywhere. (Credit: Amanda Narvaiz)

The West Family YMCA was a safe haven and advocate for my family during our hardest times. They have gone above and beyond and provided everything I could’ve ever imagined for my children and changed their lives for the growing future. Because of the Y family here in Boise, we have been healed and made whole again, knowing that there’s a community in Boise that cares about us.

Stories About West Family YMCA

Ever-smiling and compassionate, the Y goes far beyond niceties. I was a distraught struggling mother with a son who was not doing well mentally. They have changed our lives with their compassion and love. My son has been doing so well, and we try to visit often. A year later, the Y family continues to contact us, ask about our wellbeing, and be proactive in my children’s lives. I don’t know where I would be without them.
