YMCA Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback

From Everything.Sucks

YMCA, sometimes regionally called the Y, is a worldwide youth organization based in Geneva, Switzerland, with more than 64 million beneficiaries in 120 countries. It was founded on 6 June 1844 by Sir George Williams in London, originally as the Young Men's Christian Association, and aims to put Christian principles into practice by developing a healthy "body, mind, and spirit".

According to AP NEWS back in August 2019, a man who’d been working for a YMCA in southern Iowa was accused of sexually abusing a child. Union County court records say 35-year-old Allen Long, of Lenox, is charged with lascivious acts with a child. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call from The Associated Press. Court documents say the girl told deputies on Aug. 9 that Long molested her at a home in Afton. YMCA officials say Long no longer as the athletic director at the YMCA in Creston. He was fired.

"What a horrible place. They swore I didn’t pay for the room yet. And I had to send them proof of my bank account, after which they only said ‘sorry’. Also they totally ruined my laundry. It’s stained with what looks like bleach and I have to throw away my favorite items. I have been traveling through Thailand, Malaysia and now Singapore for a month and I never had any problems whatsoever when I had my laundry done. They claim to hire people with disabilities for charity, but it seems now their reasons are not noble but economical. They gave me 7 Singapore dollars for the laundry which is just enough to buy a cup of coffee. Save yourself a lot of trouble on your vacation and do not stay here."
