Community Impact

Do You Know the Y?

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. The Y serves three crucial areas of focus to help individuals, families and communities learn, grow and thrive.

The Y is for Youth Development, because we believe that all kids deserve opportunities to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement.

The Y is for Healthy Living, improving the nation’s health and well-being. The Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests.

The Y is for Social Responsibility, giving back and providing support to our neighbors. The Y has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical needs for over a 150 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being, welcoming and connecting diverse populations or advocating for healthier communities, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.

The YMCA serves the entire community and is open to everyone. Donors enable the YMCA, a charitable, non-profit organization in compliance with IRS code 501(c)3.

2013 Statistics:

The Y served more than 45,000 people of all faiths, backgrounds and incomes.

Helped build character in 5,000 youth last year through programming at more than 44 locations.

More than $400,000 in critical financial assistance provided the opportunity over 1,700 kids and families to participate in membership and programs.

Through YMCA’s Camp Carson, more than 1,100 kids got to roam the woods, ride a horse and sing songs by the camp fire… activities that many of them had never experienced before.
