Military Outreach Initiative

Military Outreach Initiative

YMCA of Pueblo is proud to announce that we will be taking part in the Military Outreach Initiative program! 

We understand that military families are under enormous strain, and that military life comes with unique challenges. Deployments and frequent moves can be a stressful and uncertain time for our nation’s servicemen and women and their families.

In partnership with the Armed Services YMCA, the Y is proud to offer memberships and respite child care services to eligible military families and personnel through the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Military Outreach Initiative.

The Armed Services YMCA has partnered with YMCAs, as well as national and independent fitness centers nationwide, to offer service members and famies free access to fitness centers and respite child care services*. The Military Outreach Initiative gives service members and military families extra support and access to vital resources that promote youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. It’s another way of giving back to those who dedicate themselves to serving our country.



  • More than 1,500 Community YMCAs, and more than 1,600 national and independent fitness centers nationwide participate in the Military Outreach Initiative
  • Since 2008, more than 133,000 military children have been impacted by this program
  • The Military Outreach Initiative has provided more than 95,000 memberships since its launch
