The Y is a positive force in this community. Together, we take on the challenges that shape our community’s future. From tackling the achievement gap to teaching healthy habits for a lifetime or giving people the chance to strengthen our community through volunteering, everything the Y does is in service of building a better us. Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Y volunteers and donors make the difference. Your gift helps our community and everyone in it shine. Our annual campaign donors make it possible for children, families and adults to have access to Y programs that improve their lives. We strive to keep values-based youth programs and fees affordable by subsidizing some of the real costs. That’s one way we partner with you to make a difference.

But we know that some individuals and families struggle to pay the rent, put food on the table and buy clothes for their kids. They need financial assistance to come to the Y. Through the annual campaign, we make sure that our doors are open to all. Your support helps thousands of youth and families live healthier and happier lives. They do better in school. They manage their illnesses. And kids get a good square meal!

Yes, you know the problems we face. Now you know that the Y is your partner, standing up and making a difference with YOU! Together, we can create a better us.
