Dear YMCA Members,

The RARITAN BAY AREA YMCA is keeping you and your family in our prayers as we navigate the challenging circumstances related to the Coronavirus. We THANK YOU for STAYING WITH US and allowing us to place your membership on HOLD until we re-open.

It is times like this, which best defines the difference between the YMCA and a Gym.  When you belong to the Y, you are not only a member of a health and wellness facility and/or Childcare services; you are a member of a COMMUNITY and in many ways extended family. We are inspired when we receive messages from members voicing their appreciation for the creative methods the Y has used to provide critical services while their membership is on hold.   Many have been so thankful; they asked to donate their monthly membership fee to assist us in our community service efforts.  If you would like to join these members, I invite you to be a part of our OPT-IN program by emailing me at Your monthly membership fees will allow us to continue to provide crucial services that are needed in OUR COMMUNITY and would be recognized as a donation.

If you are not in a position to donate at this time, you do not have to do anything, and your account is on hold and will not be drafted.

If you OPT-IN, your generosity will allow us to continue to provide the following services, at no cost to the community.


  • On-line TUTORING
  • COOKING DEMO’S on Facebook
  • Google Classroom Coding and Weather CLUBS FOR TEENS
  • Distribution of FOOD & HYGIENE PRODUCTS
  • STORYTIME book reading for Preschoolers
  • CRAFT Video’s

We promise to continue to keep you updated regarding the status of programming and services via our website, email, and on social media. In the meantime, please stay connected at and like us on Facebook.

Please stay healthy and be safe. We continue to pray for the healing of our Community and for those afflicted with the virus.

We look forward to seeing you at YOUR YMCA soon!


Steve Jobin, President & CEO
