The YMCA Judson Community Center is breaking down walls, literally + figuratively.

One of the pillars of YMCA programs is to ensure healthy development of children through youth initiatives and the YMCA Judson Community Center is doing just that.

The price tag on this project was ~$500,000 with hopes to support Judson neighborhood families with children.

In the almost 24 years the building has stood, this renovation is its first.

The updates include the removal of a wall that opened up an extra 900 sqft that was allocated for programming space + about 530 sqft for an outdoor patio space. The kids will also enjoy eating outside as plans are set for an updated outdoor picnic area. Other renovations included fresh coats of paint as well as new floors and renovated restrooms.

The funding of this project was a group effort that included The Boardman Group + the Greenville Health Authority Grant.
