QCTimes Story by Deirdre Baker

Dora Medina is feeling good at the start of this new year, especially after dropping more than 100 pounds with daily exercise and a new diet since 2013 began.

It's taken almost a year, but the 47-year-old Davenport homemaker is happy to say how much better she is doing. "I feel like I'm 25! And you can write that down," she says enthusiastically.

Thanks to a United Way Community Impact Grant to increase preschool services in downtown Davenport, the Scott County Family Y is pleased to present our brand new Davenport Family YMCA Learning Center preschool addition.
 
“The Y is so much more than just a healthy living leader in our area,” said Y CEO Brad Martell.
“Youth Development has guided our mission locally since 1858. And this expanded preschool
service is another example of our collaborative efforts to strengthen community and to serve more local families.”


Twenty new slots for the state-wide voluntary preschool program have now been added in the fast-growing downtown Davenport residential market. $26,000 of the $38,000 expansion was awarded from a United Way Community Impact grant, while additional YMCA partners covered
the remaining cost.

CARING, RESPONSIVE & WELL-TRAINED

> Lifeguards demonstrate great skill in on-going trainings

Bettendorf Lifeguards keeping their rescue skills sharp! 

Scott County Family Y benchmarks are that a team of lifeguards should be able to backboard and remove a suspected head/neck/back injury victim from the pool safely and under 2 minutes.  These lifeguards rocked it and our fastest removal was 1 minute 42 seconds! A testament to our concern for keeping the most priceless treasures in the world - our children - as well as parents and adults, safe at all times.
