Yonkers Family YMCA Unveils PeaceMobile RV

The YONKERS FAMILY YMCA proudly presents the unveiling of its latest initiative, the PeaceMobile RV. This groundbreaking mobile unit is set to revolutionize crisis response in communities affected by violence.

 “The PeaceMobile stands as a beacon of hope, offering vital services to communities grappling with trauma and conflict,” remarked Sade Gilcrest, Director of the PeaceMobile.

“Through therapeutic wellness programs, conflict resolution strategies, and healing practices, we aspire to cultivate environments of resilience and tranquility. Our mission is to create a safe haven where all individuals can find peace and solidarity.”

The Yonkers YMCA PeaceMobile will function as a mobile sanctuary, providing a diverse array of offerings including Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation, Music and Arts, P.E.A.C.E Music Studios, a Relaxation Oasis featuring restorative massage and aromatherapy sessions, Healing and Community Circles, as well as Professional and Unconventional Therapeutic services.

The realization of this vision was not without its obstacles, and we extend heartfelt appreciation to the individuals who have contributed to its success.

Together, we are forging a path toward a brighter, more harmonious future for Yonkers and beyond.
