At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. That’s why we focus our work in three areas:

  • Youth Development – nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
  • Healthy Living – improving the nation’s health and well-being.
  • Social Responsibility – giving back and providing support to our neighbors.


Each year the YMCA works to strengthen community by providing programs and facilities that are accessible to all. Our Annual Campaign raises money to help provide scholarships for programs and memberships to those in the community that need them. We also work to provide our mission programs to the community, including our day camps, neuro-wellness program and our teen center.


Your legacy gift ensures that your impact on this organization, this community and your neighbors continues long into the future. Legacy gifts secure the long-term sustainability of the Y, ensuring we will be here to help our community for generations to come. With your gift, the Y will be here for years to come.
