Here for Our Community

The First Coast YMCA is teaming up with Ys across Florida to help those impacted by Hurricane Ian.

Please join us in opening our hearts to those devastated by the storm.

YMCAs across Florida are working hard to recover from varying levels of damage during Hurricane Ian. Ys that are operational have become safe havens for storm victims—a place where families and individuals alike can find electricity, a hot shower, and a comforting environment.

If you are able, consider making a donation right now to support the Y’s Hurricane Ian Relief Fund. 100% of all contributions will be used for recovery efforts for Ys and their neighbors hit hardest by the storm.

You Can Help

Your donation will help the Y provide food, shelter, relief supplies, emotional support, recovery planning and other assistance to storm victims.
