Together, we are making a difference.

At the Y, strengthening the community is our cause. Every day, we work side by side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, background, or ability, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive.



We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

“The Y has given me independence, skills and opportunities to develop as a leader.”

– Jenna Cherry


Being healthy means more than simply being physically active. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body. The Y is a place where you can work toward that balance by challenging yourself to learn a new skill or hobby, fostering connections with friends through our lifelong learning programs, or bringing your loved ones closer together through our many family-centered activities. At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside.

“We love all the Y offers! My husband and I also take time for ourselves to exercise while our boys enjoy Child Watch. Staff are welcoming and take an interest in our family. It feels like home at the Y!”

– Jenna Crovo


The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage. If you would like to contribute your support, please contact one of the Ys in our area.

“The Y gives me control–some say in my life–whereas MS has a mind of its own. Once I get here and I’m in it, I’m enjoying it. And I always leave in a better, happier place than I came in.”

– Marley Brown,
Multiple Sclerosis Program participant
