Our Commitment to Community
Thanks to the generosity of our donors and community partners, we are able to make life-changing YMCA programs accessible to those who may otherwise be unable to afford them. As a charitable, non-profit organization, we allocate funds to help all people reach their full potential.
Ensuring Access to Wellness
The Y provides financial assistance to make sure people of all ages and abilities have the opportunity to take control of their health and well-being, through programs such as chronic disease prevention, weight loss management, nutrition education, youth sports, family activities, and group fitness classes.
Making Kids of all Ages Safe in the Water
The Y promotes safety in and around water through its year-round swim lessons and lifeguard certification courses.
Bridging the Achievement Gap
The Y nurtures the potential in all youth through academic enrichment programs such as Power Scholars, Summer Learning Loss Prevention, Early Learning Readiness, STEM, and preschool education.
Combating Hunger and Food Insecurity
The Y believes all people should have access to affordable, healthy food. We provide nutritious meals and snacks with our child care programs, in addition to our Saturday Lunch Program at the William-Emslie YMCA. Community gardens increase the availability of locally grown, nutritious foods.
