One night, Brook found one of her sons in bed and not breathing. Shortly later, he passed away. During this time of tragedy and grief, Brook felt alone and didn't know where to turn. Having been a Y member, she soon found that her Y family would provide the type of support and love that she most needed. In fact, her son most wanted to be with his friends in the Day Care program. He wanted to be at the Y. Later, when Brook was ready to come back to the Y, her Y family wrapped their arms around her in the exact way that she wanted and needed. The Y helped fill a big void in Brook's family's life. The sorrow will never fully be gone, but the friends and family at the Y help her recognize and find the joy that everyday can provide.

Every day, whether it is turning a frown into a smile, or helping people improve their lifestyle, our staff are changing lives. At the Y, 'Us' is a promise.
