About Us


Our Purpose

The Y is a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages and from all walks of life, joined together by a shared promise: TO STRENGTHEN THE FOUNDATIONS OF COMMUNITY. With a commitment to nurturing the potential of all kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive. Though the world may be unpredictable, one thing remains certain – the Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, secure and connected children, families and communities. It gives us a place to play, to learn, to be healthy and to give back. Everything the Y does is in service of making us better.

With the Y you are not just a member of a facility, you’re part of a cause. With a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, improving health and well-being, giving back and supporting our neighbors, your membership will not just bring about a meaningful change in yourself, but also in your community.

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. To ensure youth realize their potential to become active, engaged and thriving members of society, the Y nurtures their development from birth to career through programming, experiences and support.

Healthy Living

The Y is a leading community-based network committed to improving America’s health. We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. We harness our vast network to help the nation battle chronic disease and improve individual and community health through programs that promote wellness, reduce risk of disease and help people reclaim their health. Because we believe we have a responsibility to make a positive and measurable impact on the community’s health, we will directly leverage a mission centered on the balance of spirit, mind and body to strengthen and expand program offerings that bring families closer together, encourage healthy lifestyles and foster connections with others.

Social Responsibility

The Y has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical social needs for more than 160 years. We understand that the desire to belong and help others is human nature, and everyone has something of value to contribute. Often, people just need to be motivated to act, and the Y has the credibility and expertise to be a catalyst. To foster social connectedness, strengthen support networks and encourage investment in communities, both locally and globally, the Y activates resources and engages people from diverse populations for individual and collective action, regardless of their ability to pay for these services. Financial assistance is available to those that qualify.
