The YMCA of South Alabama Board of Directors announced it will restructure the Hearin-Chandler Family YMCA to continue its focus on youth development programs and will end member-related fitness and aquatic activities. These changes will be effective October 31, 2021. The Board of Directors is restructuring the operations of the local YMCA to make the best use of limited resources.
Childcare programs will continue to operate as scheduled within the Hearin-Chandler Family YMCA Child Watch Center (formerly the Cub Club). “Since the pandemic, we have evaluated what needs we can fulfill in the community,” said Sue Sanders, CEO of the YMCA of South Alabama. “It’s a gut-wrenching decision, but it is the right one for the Y to be sustainable and remain a resource in this community in the future.”
Our Commitment to You...
The YMCA of South Alabama strives to create an economically sustainable environment for a positive employee and/or member experience within all YMCA of South Alabama facilities, while prioritizing and representing the YMCA tenets of social responsibility and healthy living in all business practices.
