A Message From Our CEO: Building a Healthy Spirit

For the past 57 years, the YMCA of Metro Atlanta has hosted an annual inspirational breakfast in celebration of Good Friday. Unfortunately, we cannot gather together, in person, to enjoy fellowship as a community and YMCA family today. Instead, we want to share with you a message of hope and faith from our President and CEO Lauren Koontz.

Good Friday is a time for rebirth and renewal. A time when we are reminded that there is no tragedy that can overwhelm God’s presence, love and grace. We are also in the midst of Passover, a celebration of great miracles, the journey from slavery to freedom, and a time for taking responsibility for our community and ourselves.

Though we are in the midst of uncertain times, we want to remind you that you are not alone. We are a connected community. And, together, we will get through this.
