As we all navigate through varying restrictions following the height of the pandemic, we know we can’t fully predict the lasting effects. However, the Y remains steadfast in helping to rebuild what was lost - socially, mentally and academically.
While we can’t predict the lasting effects, we know that we need to help rebuild what was lost - socially, mentally and academically.
The pandemic and recent national events have highlighted the inequities that persist, while also shining a spotlight on further challenges that these crises can present for families living in poverty. Everyone deserves an equal chance to achieve social and economic success as our communities rebuild.
The Y provides a place where people feel safe, neighbors can rebuild connections, and adults can restore their well-being.
We have all had to adapt and readjust in the constantly evolving environment.
Responding to changing needs in communities is at the heart of the Y’s cause; we will continue to do extraordinary things with your support.
Bridging the Opportunity Gap
We believe every child deserves access to high quality, enriching life experiences. The Y provides opportunities for all youth to connect, belong and achieve.
The Y provides safe spaces and the opportunity to convene individuals from across our region for relationship-building, volunteer activities, the formation of community partnerships and working toward collective impact and equity for our region.
Cultivating Health Equity
We believe where you live should not dictate your quality and length of life. The Y provides supportive environments and community integrated health programs to address these disparities.
