girls with swim instructor in pool

Rachel has three daughters. She applied for YMCA of Greensboro's Financial Assistance program for swim lessons, and her daughters were able to learn to swim. Read on to hear from Rachel:

“My three girls and I moved here three years ago, and the Y has been my sanity and safe place for my girls. Knowing that I have good care for them while I work out is priceless. Also, through the Financial Assistance program, we were able to start swim lessons... and now my girls are mermaids!

We come a few times a week to swim and spend time as a family. I have seen swimming give my middle daughter confidence and identity. Her goal is to join the swim team! Thank you to the Y for providing opportunities to my girls that I couldn’t give them alone.”
