At the heart of the Fry Family YMCA is the power to transform—both yourself and the world around you.


A CLOSER LOOK

Tina was a stay-at-home mother with four children when her husband lost his job last year. Her husband was unable to find new employment, so Tina re-entered the workforce. As summer approached, Tina grew concerned that she could not afford activities for her four children that would keep them active, happy and out of trouble.

This is when Tina came to the Fry Family YMCA. Because of its scholarship assistance program, the Fry Family Y was able to provide day camp to all four of Tina’s children throughout the entire summer. They were able to participate in the same activities their neighborhood peers did and Tina was able to have peace of mind, knowing that her children were thriving in a nurturing environment.

THE FRY FAMILY YMCA

As a nonprofit organization committed to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Fry Family YMCA has been proud to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive for 19 years.

Between the whistles of a sports league, the splash of a swim lesson and the smile that says “you’re welcome,” the Fry Family YMCA strengthens bodies, minds and communities. Where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, program participants and staff to make a difference.

Since 1995, the Fry Family YMCA serves south Naperville and surrounding communities. For more than 21,500 members, 140 volunteers and 697 program participants, the Fry Family YMCA is a destination where local children and families have the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, and where people of all ages, interests and abilities can build and maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
