Our members and friends call us THEIR Y. We call them OUR greatest resource—the thousands of people who work alongside us and support our work to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive. No other organization can impact as many people as powerfully as we do every day.
With the help of generous donors, we can extend our impact and help our local community.

Bringing the community together through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body has been and continues to be our mission.
