The YMCA supports children and teens, allowing them to explore their unique talents and interests to help them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today, and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow. To build on this focus area, the Citrus Memorial Health Foundation YMCA offers all foster care children and their families free memberships. With Y access, youth, teens and their families can enjoy the pool, basketball courts, teen room, Kids Zone, Wellness Center and more. The YMCA recently received a grant of $17,712 from the U.S. Family Foundation to help sustain this important initiative and provide support for foster families in Citrus County.
