CH+R sponsors YMCA Winter Swim Program For Area Children

Concord Housing + Redevelopment (CH+R) is continuing to have a positive impact on area children through their sponsorships of local swim programs. After sponsoring the Concord Parks and Recreation Department swim program this past summer, CH+R jumped back in this winter with the Concord YMCA.

Recognizing the importance of teaching children this crucial life skill at an early age, CH+R has provided this donation to bring swim lessons and water safety to the children of low income families, who are not YMCA members.

The kids had a terrific time, and the staff were so patient and supportive that even our most reluctant swimmers are dying to go back to the YMCA.
