Americans have about a 40% chance of developing cancer at some point in their lives. The Georgia Mountains YMCA offers a completely subsidized Livestrong at the YMCA program twice a year for cancer survivors, allowing them to reclaim their strength and build a community of physical, mental, and emotional support.
Safety Around Water
Drowning is the 2nd leading cause of death for children. 60% of incidents happen within 10 feet of safety. 88% of drownings happen with an adult present. The Georgia Mountains YMCA partners with Hall County Schools through the YMCA Safety Around Water program. By integrating these skills into students' school day, we help remove financial, transportation, and scheduling barriers so that every child has access to these important life-saving swim skills.
Angel Tree
About 50% of families in Hall county are not financially self-sufficient. Every year the YMCA works with our community to give over 100 kids the Christmas morning every child deserves.
Community & Financial Assistance
50.2% of Hall families are not financially self-sufficient. Increased food and housing costs put underprivileged families at severe financial risk. The Y gives away over $500,000 every year in subsidized memberships, programs, and services so that we can be accessible to all families.
Childcare & Education
45% of students in Hall County are below reading level by 3rd Grade, making them four times more likely to drop out. To provide childcare options for working parents and to promote student success, the Y operates 20 afterschool sites and 2 early learning centers.
Community Health & Wellness
Hall County outranks the state average across most chronic health conditions including obesity, heart disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes. To provide access to healthy lifestyles, the J.A. Walters Family YMCA provides support to the entire community.
