The Obier Family

Dear Mississippi Gulf Coast YMCA,

Your YMCA branch and childcare services were a lifesaver to our family this summer. My husband was activated with the Air Force at Keesler for 6 months. I decided to move our four kids into our fishing camp in Ocean Springs for the summer so that we could feel some normalcy as a family. (We live in Louisiana.) It was tough living in a two bedroom camp with four children under the age of 7! Therefore, it was a breath of fresh air when we joined the Y! I was able to take an adult break and exercise while our kids were able to play with other children in child watch. Your YMCA truly got us through the summer and my husband’s 6-month activation. Not only that, my oldest two children are now confident swimmers!! I cannot thank you enough! You have blessed our family immensely!
