Our Cause

You belong at the Y

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. The Y is a nonprofit cause-driven organization with three areas of focus:

Youth Development

At the Y, all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential.  We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development.

Healthy Living

Most people tend to think of health and well-being as only physical.  At the Y, we believe “the physical” is only part of a bigger picture and offer classes that lift people’s spirit, sharpen their mind and help them achieve overall wellness in spirit, mind and body.  By helping young people, adults, families and seniors improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community every day.

Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, Y members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by working together.  A strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our youth, our health and our neighbors.
