Free Community Programs

SERVING OUR SENIORS & SPECIAL POPULATIONS

The Greater Wyoming Valley Area YMCA is proud to serve our seniors with a variety of free programs. Thanks to Wilkes-Barre City Health Department, the Area Agency on Aging and other grant funders we are able to support our community with programs for: Balance, Osteoarthritis, Osteopenia, High Blood Pressure, Cancer Survivors and Pre-diabetics.

Our programs are multifaceted for a well rounded wellness approach addressing strength & mobility, isolations & fears, and nutrition & exercise.

Many programs are free for anyone and some programs are free to those age 60 and up. To learn more please call our Senior Wellness Director, Lauranel Banks at 570-970-5012.

GESINGER FRIENDLY NEIGHBORS

The Geisinger Friendly Neighbor program was established to help those in our community facing challenges from social isolation to lack of resources (food, shelter, transportation, medical and more). Enroll as a participant who needs services or as a volunteer to help your neighbors.

Please contact Dominic Griffith if you’d like to sign up to receive this service through the YMCA
