Sarah & Nate’s Story

Sarah knew the importance of water safety, having had an uncle who passed away in a lake since he didn’t have the skills necessary to swim. When she found her son Nate frightened of water, she turned to the Sarpy Community YMCA for swim lessons. Unable to afford swim lessons, Sarah received financial assistance to provide swim lessons for her son.

“Since Nate has joined swim lessons, his behavior has changed dramatically. His amazing instructors at the Y have helped show him that water can be our friend when we practice the skills we learn.”
