Piedmont Family YMCA


The B.B’s Kids Scholarship Fund was established June 2011 in honor of Barbara Brown's service in the community and many well spent years at the YMCA. Barbara Brown has worked hard in the community for over 40 years; 25 of those years at the Piedmont Family YMCA. Barbara was the Y’s Child Care Director for 20 years and the Associate Executive Director for 5 years. She served on various child care committees, including CVAEYC (Central Virginia Association for the Education of Young Children) as President of the board. Barbara believes that no child should be turned away because of income, and always gave away a good amount of scholarships. Barbara also started 3 After School programs and summer camps for low income communities. Barbara truly believed in child care stating, “It has always been my dream that every child could have quality child care”.

B.B’s Kids Scholarship Fund supports Barbara Brown’s dream in enabling all children to receive quality child care that’s affordable. If you’d like more information or would like to make a contribution contact Brookes Sims: bsims@Piedmontymca.org.
