Customer Service

Karen’s customer service team team knows her name and understands the unique needs of a YMCA. The team brings great energy on every call and they take the time to listen to her challenges and offer solutions. According to Karen, “you have one of the best customer service teams I have ever worked with.”

“I love everything about The CORner. I have met so many great people to share experiences with, ask questions and learn from. It’s been refreshing to see that others are experiencing similar challenges, and now I can lean on others for advice and support.”
