With the community’s help in 2016, Jacob’s Ladder Pediatric Rehabilitation in Chesterton is reaching more children than ever.

The Valparaiso Family YMCA is pleased to announce that Monica Decker and Donna Flanagin will serve as Co-Chairs of the Valparaiso Family YMCA Annual Campaign. The Annual Campaign assists the Y in providing scholarship assistance to low income individuals, those with disabilities, and social service agencies, so that everyone who seeks better health and well-being has access to the facilities and programs of the Valparaiso Family YMCA. It is the Mission of the Y that not any individual be turned away due to the inability to pay. Through this commitment and the generosity of our supporters, we are able to give back $4 to the community for every $1 that is donated to this cause.
