The Columbia Association (CA) is committed to ensuring access to services and facilities that meet the diverse needs of individuals and groups in the community. In fact, CA offers income-qualified programs that are available to Columbia residents to help them obtain access to CA facilities and programs.
Check out CA’s programs below.
- Income-Qualified Discounts: Reduced rates for facility memberships and program fees for School Age Services and camps are available for residents who live or work full-time on CA-assessed property and whose household income is within the Columbia Association’s income guidelines.
- Earn-A-Membership Program: The Earn-A-Membership program provides the opportunity for residents to earn a membership by volunteering at CA and CA-managed facilities. There are two existing programs: one for adults/families and one for teens ages 14–18.
- Operation Homefront Heroes: A free Package Plan membership is awarded to the dependents of CA residents who are currently deployed in support of combat missions as designated on official orders and whose dependents (spouse and/or children under the age of 23) remain in Columbia.
- Emergency Assistance: Assistance is provided to a resident or family that resides on CA-assessed property that is faced with a disastrous circumstance and/or a financial situation that does not permit full payment for Columbia Association child care programs and/or facility memberships.
