The YMCA of Greater Kansas City will hold a community forum May 12 to discuss the Paul Henson Family YMCA in Prairie Village, Kan. 

Paul Henson Y members and the Prairie Village community are invited to learn more about the Y and provide feedback about the Prairie Village location’s role in the community going forward.

“We want to hear from the community and have an open dialogue around the Y’s presence in Prairie Village,” said Mark Hulet, Chief Operating Officer. “As a nonprofit, we are exploring sustainable solutions including partnerships and philanthropic support that would be the best use of available resources.”

The Paul Henson Family YMCA opened in 1965. Prior to the pandemic, the Y was working with the City of Prairie Village on an opportunity to partner on a new community center. Those plans were put on hold in 2020. 

The community forum will be an opportunity for the Y to gather information to help determine next steps. 

The forum will take place at Meadowbrook Clubhouse, 9101 Nall Ave, Prairie Village, KS 66207, on Thursday, May 12 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Y members and the community are invited to attend. Please register online if you plan to attend.
