Maintaining cleanliness is always a challenge for those who are homeless, but times have been even worse due to the current Coronavirus pandemic. Through funds provided by the York City Bureau of Health the YMCA of York and York County is able to assist those in need.
 
For this service, on Mondays and Thursdays, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., the unsheltered homeless of York can shower at the YMCA Graham Aquatic Center, located at 543 N. Newberry Street.  People coming to use the showers must use the entrance on the south side of the building (the side next to Ferguson Elementary.)

Community partners assisting with this program include:
 
  • YWCA of Harrisburg
  • Friends and Neighbors of PA, Inc.
  • York Cares
  • Mission Central
  • Asbury United Methodist Church
  • York County Planning Commission
  • York City Bureau of Health
 
“We will continue this service until York County goes to the yellow phase, at which time it will return to LifePath Christian Ministries. It is great to see community organizations coming together to better serve those in our area. That is what it is all about”, stated Craig Wolf, Director of Community Development.
 
For more information, please call 717-854-7291, Ext. 705
