May 15th, 2020 - Finally! We will open Monday, May 18th with reduced hours. As we navigate through reopening our Odessa Family YMCA facility, our team continues to put the needs, health and safety of our members and staff at the forefront of our decision-making process. As we prepare, we want to make you aware of some changes to our process and expectations moving forward. We know everyone is ready to get some exercise for your overall well-being and we are slowly opening parts of the Y, in a limited capacity, as safely as possible. We are thoroughly cleaning on a daily basis and will follow a strict cleaning schedule so we may continue to provide a safe environment.

 • All must wash or sanitize their hands upon entry and before and after workouts.

We truly believe together we are stronger. We look forward to seeing you again at the Y, but until then, be safe, stay home and stay healthy.

Scroll down for membership closure choices.

From all of us at the Odessa Family YMCA, allow us to express how much we all miss seeing you and serving you. We hope you, your families and friends, are staying healthy during this current crisis. We believe strongly that if we stand together and act together, we will beat COVID-19 and see our communities get back on their feet.

In the interim, we’ve had to make some decisions about what happens right now, and as a non-profit, those decisions do not come easy. Now that April is here, and federal social-distancing guidance has been extended, we needed to decide what happens going forward. As an organization built on Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring, we feel this decision best embodies our values.

This was a challenging decision for the Y as a non-profit that depends on membership to continue serving our communities. Without our members, the future for the Y is uncertain.

How has the Y continued serving our members and community? While our doors are closed, we still have exponential expenses to cover - as many businesses hurt during these times.

We've re-opened some our facilities to provide essential workers with childcare (call Adonica at 432-334-7971), so they can provide the care our communities so desperately need. That operation requires regular disinfection, and enforcing strict safety protocols.

We are absorbing all these costs so that we can continue to serve our communities when we’re needed most - even though this makes our future uncertain.

As a non-profit, our ability to remain viable depends on our members and donors. Without membership dues and program fees, we can't generate income to help us sustain our efforts. We fully intend to re-open when it is safe. But, no one can pinpoint a timeline, and that puts our Ys in an uncertain spot.

Essential Worker Child Care Program & Financial Assistance

The Odessa Family YMCA is offering childcare to COVID-19 essential workers, for children ages 6 weeks to 12 years, at the Joe Pinner Learning Center. With children out of school, many families are left trying to figure out how to pay for childcare.

Workforce Solutions Permian Basin is now providing financial assistance to essential workers for childcare costs. To qualify for assistance, the family income must be under 150% of the state’s median income. The YMCA’s Joe Pinner Learning Center will accept payments through this program in lieu of parents having to pay out of pocket. To fill out an application (English or Spanish), visit http://workforcepb.org/child-care/.Completed forms and/or questions can be emailed to pbccs@pbworkforce.org.

For more information, and to apply for the Essential Worker Child Care Program, come by the Joe Pinner Learning Center at 1601 W 13th, or call us (432) 334-7971.

YMCA COVID-19 Membership Closure Choice


Your monthly membership draft is crucial in enabling us to pivot our facilities to Community Response Centers and cover general operating expenses. We are working to provide emergency care for children of medical personnel and first responders, so that they can continue their focus on public health.

Accept my monthly membership as a tax-deductible donation to provide these services, and please send me a confirmation of my donation for tax purposes. I understand my membership will remain active and normal drafts will continue as donations until the Y reopens, and my membership continues as before. I understand I can choose to place my membership on hold at a later date.

Place my membership on hold for free. I do not want to be charged until the facility is reopened. I understand that my membership will restart automatically when the Y reopens and I will pay no Joining Fee.
