OUR CAUSE DEFINES US

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause.  Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. 

OUR STRENGTH IS IN COMMUNITY


The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change.

   • The Y is community centered. For nearly 160 years, we’ve been listening and responding to our communities.
   • The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.
   • The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
   • The Y has local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.

OUR IMPACT IS FELT EVERYDAY

With a mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, 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.
