Thank You for Your Interest in Monroe and Victor
On July 31, 2020 the YMCA of Greater Rochester announced the difficult decision that the Monroe Family YMCA and Victor Active Family Center YMCA will not reopen for membership.
The impact of COVID-19 and the multiple unanticipated consequences of the crisis have presented a set of problems that the Y needed to address immediately.
YMCA of Greater Rochester and The Center for Youth are working in partnership under a memorandum of understanding agreement whereby the YMCA will transfer the Monroe building for $1 to The Center for Youth. Transfer of this building is due to be complete in the coming months along with details about future operating use of the Victor building.
All current members for both branches will be converted to Passport Memberships for the next 12 months, if this is not already their current membership type. Passport Membership grants members access to all YMCA of Greater Rochester’s facilities.
We know this news may come as a surprise and may be upsetting to you. We understand. There is never a good time to close a chapter in our history. However, being able to transition the Monroe building to another vital community nonprofit ensures its legacy within the City. And that is the Y’s mission at work: supporting community for all any way possible – even if that means we step aside.
