AREAS OF FOCUS
At the Y, we know that positive change only occurs when we invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. All of our programs and community initiatives fall into one or more of the following focus areas.
The YMCA is committed to building strong communities by providing resources for families to live their safest and healthiest lives. We assist families in battling chronic diseases and obesity, eliminating risk of drowning and preventing child abuse. By taking advantage of our deep roots in the community and strong ties to local health care providers and other service organizations, the YMCA has the infrastructure to improve the health and safety of our families by providing evidence-based programs to help prevent or reverse these critical issues.
We believe that ALL children and teens have potential. Thanks to the YMCA, more young people are taking a greater interest in learning and making smart life choices. Working with caring Y staff, children and teens are able to realize their potential by improving their educational readiness and closing achievement gaps. By building confident kids today the Y is helping to assure that they will become contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.
We know that together we are stronger. The YMCA is committed to addressing critical social issues and helping all people learn, grow and thrive. Communities are stronger when everyone has the opportunity to succeed. We strive to serve all segments of society, build bridges between communities and advance social inclusion and equity for all.
