We need all hands on deck! Support your YMCA!

Today, our community is confronted with a new challenge and our Y is again stepping up. That is where your support comes in! Your donation is crucial in helping fulfill immediate needs. With your help, here are a few ways we're responding during this time:

  • We've transitioned our facilities to Community Response Centers working to provide emergency care for children of essential personnel so that they can continue their focus on public health and providing the community with essential services.
  • We've partnered with schools to ensure children and families in need to receive healthy meals.
  • We're engaging our senior population in wellness calls and identifying their needs during this time of isolation.
  • We're providing virtual workout options and resources for the entire family to stay active and engaged while sheltering in place.

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.

Connecting Communities

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.
