Healthy Families/Happy Families at the YMCA

The Greater Scranton YMCA is proud to announce it will again be offering the Healthy Families/Happy Families Program free of charge to Lackawanna County residents this year.

Healthy Families/Happy Families is a 10-week program designed to engage youth and families in a journey of wellness through positive role models, proper nutrition and a healthy balance of fitness, fun and family. The program helps families to develop healthy habits for daily living, spend quality time together and have fun while discovering new ways to be healthy and active. The program will be held at the Y on at 10:30 a.m. on Saturdays, beginning Nov. 7, and ending Jan. 16.

The Healthy Families/Happy Families is made possible thanks to a three-year grant commitment from the Northeastern Pennsylvania Heath Care Foundation.

For information on the program and to register, as space is still available, interested families can contact Paula Scotchlas, Communtiy Outreach Director, at or call (570) 342-8115 ext. 232. More information can also be found at
