MASH

Community

Our MASH (Mainstream Adults Sharing Hope) program for adults with cognitive, physical, or emotional challenges has been serving community members 18 years of age and older for nearly two decades.

This program is free to full members. The fee for basic members is $20 per month or $240 a year.

Our goal is to help build confidence for these members so they wish to belong to the Y and their greater community. Significant financial assistance is given to these individuals who wish to have a FULL YMCA membership and grow further in spirit, mind, and body.

We generally meet on the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month for a special activity from 7 to 9 p.m. at our North Pinellas Y. These activities could include:

-adaptive sports
-dances
-games and challenges
-arts and crafts
-guest speakers

Here's some of our upcoming events
