You’re making anything possible
Imagine a future where every member of our community thrives…
A future where kids have a safe place to learn foundational skills in a nurturing environment, where young people build healthy habits, where adults have access to the resources needed to care for their mind, body and spirit, and where seniors have plentiful social connections and wellness offerings to fully enjoy their golden years
While membership fees keep the lights on and the doors open, the YMCAs Annual Campaign gives us the opportunity to provide a better future for the families and individuals impacted by the Y every day.
YOU make that possible!
The Y strives to help provide opportunities for youth to grow through our programs. We encourage and empower them to develop new skills, learn from positive adult role models, become leaders, establish friendships, discover healthy options, and reach their full potential.
More than just working out, healthy living at the Y means a gathering place for those with like interests, a place for families to build strong bonds and achieve balance, a built-in support system and a place to prevent, delay or live better with chronic health conditions
We don’t stop at the front door. The Y is made up of people of all ages and from every walk of life working side by side to strengthen communities. We work to establish partnerships to address needs, provide member-led volunteer projects and support beyond our doors
Giving isn’t just about a donation. It’s about making a difference.
The Y is a leading non-profit organization whose mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We believe that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
