Why become a member at the Y?

When you become a member at the Family YMCA of Black Hawk County, you’re setting yourself on a lifelong journey of healthy spirit, mind and body. You’re a part of an organization that provides everything from child care, health and fitness, family time, and so much more.

The Y is for All!

We believe everyone deserves a Y, so the Family YMCA of Black Hawk County offers an Income-Based Membership Pricing structure. This program offers a sliding fee scale that is designed to fit the financial situation of each individual household in our community. We believe people should have access to the programs and services at the YMCA that nurture the spirit, mind, and body regardless of their personal financial circumstances. Financial assistance can be obtained for membership, as well as program fees. Applications are available on our website or at our Welcome Desk.
