DoD, YMCA Sign 1-Year Military Outreach Program Extension

DoD logo resizeThe Armed Services YMCA has been awarded a one-year contract renewal to continue providing physical fitness and respite child care services at no cost to eligible U.S. military personnel and their families.

The nonprofit group will extend its Military Outreach Program for the agency through March 2017, the Defense Department said Friday.

Rosemary Williams,  deputy assistant defense secretary for military community and family policy, noted the initiative reflects the department’s commitment to help geographically dispersed military families.

“This initiative is especially valuable for those living in areas distant from a military installation, allowing them to access services in their own communities,” Williams added.
