RAHWAY RENOVATIONS

It takes vision and imagination to meet our community’s needs, and sometimes this vision includes facility expansion and renovation. The $3.4 million, 16,938 square foot renovation will provide countless opportunities for The Gateway Family YMCA to further the Y’s mission and address the unique needs of our community. Included in the renovation is the opportunity to return the 3 floors of the Rahway Branch that sustained significant fire damage to the community, while adding a new elevator and handicap accessibility. In addition to an extensively renovated YMCA facility, the Rahway Branch will offer Artist’s Lofts, expanding the Arts presence in the Rahway community.
