YMCA of Central Ohio Stable Families Program of Early Childhood Resource Network (ECRN+)
The YMCA is an inclusive organization of men, women, and children joined together by a shared commitment of nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility. With a mission to serve the whole community through programs expressing Judeo-Christian principles that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body, our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.
