Giving back and providing support to our neighbors

The Y listens and responds to our communities' most critical social needs.


At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. The Y is the unparalleled cause for strengthening community because we are the community. We’ve done it for nearly 160 years already, and we’re determined to keep doing it. Every day, we work side by side with our neighbors to create the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive. With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y nurtures the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation’s health and well-being, and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors. We nurture life lessons in kids, foster health and well-being among people of all ages, bring people together to pursue passions old and new, and provide mutual support for everyone in our neighborhoods. The Y has local presence and national reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.
