Our Purpose Defines Us!
The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. Working locally, we focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being and inspiring action in and across communities.
Our STRENGTH is in Community:
The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver positive change.
Our Areas of Impact:
At the Y we believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors and that’s why we focus our work within three areas of impact:
• Youth Development—Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
• Healthy Living—Improving the nation’s health and well-being
• Social Responsibility —Giving back and providing support to our neighbors
To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all!
As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Y provides crucial programs and services to more than 230,000 people every year. With the help of generous donors, we are able to provide more than 250 homeless youth safe, stable housing, 115,000 healthy meals to school-age youth, and more than $9.5 million in financial assistance to more than 27,000 people to ensure everyone has a chance to succeed and belong at the Y.
