The Y is about people – all ages, races, religions and income levels. We focus on three core areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We strive to nurture the potential of every youth and teen, improve our communities’ health and wellbeing and provide opportunities to give back and support our neighbors. We spark curiosity, we ignite a love of learning, we connect people and we transform lives through health and wellness. Our core values of Respect, Responsibility, Honesty and Caring are woven into everything we do. The Y continues to expand our role as a safe and positive place for families to spend time, a place for empty nesters to experience an active lifestyle, and a place where retirees gather to maintain their health and independence. The Y is an organization where cause meets community, we open doors of opportunity to those who need it most. We mobilize volunteers to help us carry out our mission “to put Christian principles into practice by promoting youth, adult and family activities that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.” In 2017, we provided $2.3M locally in financial assistance and program subsidy. We are community, we are the Y!
