Patricia's South County Y Story

Published 01.02.14

My family and I are lifelong residents of Soledad. My husband and I both work in Soledad and my three children attend our local schools. Our local YMCA provides different indoor and outdoor activities and sports to keep our children occupied throughout the year without having to leave our city. During the summer our children also attend the summer program; the YMCA takes them to water and theme parks that otherwise we would not be able to take them to.

The YMCA has provided a safe environment for my children to participate in activities that keep them healthy, boosts their confidence and self-esteem. My family and I have created friendships with other families participating in similar activities at our YMCA.  With Soledad being such a small community we are grateful that our local YMCA and their staff provide a variety of activities for our community.
