We deeply appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate the challenging circumstances related to the Coronavirus. We are all operating in unknown territory right now, and we are working as quickly as we can to keep you updated and address your questions.


At the Ozarks Regional YMCA, everything we do is guided by our commitment to support our community, and this is even more critical now. When you belong to the Y, you are not only a member of a health and wellness facility, you are a member of an organization dedicated to strengthening our community. In difficult times, the Y pivots in response to community needs, and finds ways to use our resources to offer solutions – and you can help.

Stay with Us – Your YMCA Membership Choice

Your membership helps support our efforts to meet the critical needs in our community during this pandemic. Two examples of how the Y is helping include emergency Childcare for children of essential workers and grab and go breakfast and lunch for children in need. More of our initiatives are highlighted below.


Please tell us, how you would like us to handle your YMCA membership fees. You can use this link to a Membership Choice Form to indicate your preference. There are several options for you to consider:

  1. We respectfully ask that you consider staying with us by keeping your membership active during this time so that we can remain fully focused on our efforts to help our community stay strong in spirit, mind and body. Our numerous initiatives to help our community include emergency childcare for essential workers, workout at home wellness classes and a growing number of online resources for families. In addition, your gift will help us ensure our ability to reopen when the time comes.  Should you choose to keep your membership active, please know how deeply grateful we are for your generosity. 

  2. We also understand that you may have financial obligations; and naturally, we will place your membership on hold at no cost during this time should you wish to do so. Once your membership is on hold, we will extend your hold without charge for 60 days or as soon as our Y's reopen, at that time your membership will automatically resume. Of course, no Joining Fee would be required.


Please be sure to indicate your choice on this form, 5 days prior to your draft date otherwise, your account will be charged.


Going forward, draft dates will remain unchanged and we will handle your membership fees accordingly.


How You Can Help 

It goes without saying that the Coronavirus has created enormous uncertainty. However, how we respond is within our control. As soon as we realized the severity of the situation, we mobilized to explore ways the Y could help our community. You play a vital role in helping us deploy these services and serve our community by CONTINUING your membership.
