At the Y, strengthening community is our cause and as a result the Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the community’sÂ health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
OurÂ Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.
There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. Thatâ€™s because we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change. 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.
