We Are Proud to Announce...

That the YMCA of Marion and Polk Counties are expanding our affordable housing project to include an apartment complex dedicated to Salem veterans and their families. The complex will be housed directly across from the new YMCA. The facility will have 1- and 2-bedroom units and will serve Salem veterans and residents that can demonstrate an area median income of 60% or below the poverty line.

We are proud to partner with Mid-Willamette Community Action Agency’s ARCHES project who will provide comprehensive services on the site for our residing veterans.

Further, all residents will have access to the Salem Family YMCA and programs.
