YMCA rolls out new program to help unemployed members

NORWICH – As more and more companies are making staffing cuts in order to stay afloat during this difficult economic time, the YMCA is trying to ensure that those who lose their jobs have one less thing to worry about.

The Y recently rolled out a new program that would allow members who lose their jobs to keep their membership until they can get back on their feet. “This is a huge new program, that ranks right up there with our Open Doors scholarship program,” said YMCA Executive Director Jamey Mullen.
