"You don't do it alone, you do it with support of others." 

As a single parent, Valene had to work three jobs to support herself and her son, Zach. Accessing safe and nurturing childcare for Zach was what she wanted the most, but they could barely make ends meet at that time. Guided by advice from a colleague, she applied for YMCA Financial Assistance and was approved, so Zach was able to attend Y programs thanks to the generosity of donors to the YMCA.
