The Gateway Region YMCA was founded in 1853 as a place to bring people together, provide a haven for those needing assistance and to help serve the needs of the community. We have stayed true to our roots and today, proudly serve nearly 300,000 individuals in the bi-state region and employ more than 4,000 full-time and part-time people.
To honor our legacy and continue building toward the future, our Strategic Plan serves as the guide for our decision-making. Our goals are big, and layout our three primary strategies to achieve success – commitment to culture, organizational excellence and social responsibility. The strategic priorities, initiatives and success measures in our plan serve as the blueprint for how we will be the center of the community by inspiring and promoting emotional, spiritual and physical well-being both now and in the future.
We invite you to read our plan and join us in our efforts to strengthen our community.
