Mission: To put christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Programs: Social responsibilityour ymca provides a variety of programs to develop personal educational/vocational/leadership skills, and we partner with other community organizations to identify and respond to community needs. Ymca programs, such a project graduation and splash week, are examples of how our ymca develops social responsibility that strengthens our community and builds the foundation for future generations to thrive. We have engaged hundreds of ymca members, participants and volunteers in activities that build social responsibility.
youth developmentthe ymca is a leader in nurturing the potential of every child and teen. Every day, the ymca helps young people deepen positive values, their commitment to service, and their motivation to learn. Our ymca programs, such as our child care and preschool programs, offer a range of experiences that enrich cognitive, social, physical and emotional growth. Expenses include subsidies and direct financial assistance that enable 60% of young people to participate in these early learning opportunities.
healthy livingymcas focus on healthy living by advocating health and well-being from the inside out - the spirit, mind and body. The ymca provides nearly 10,000 members with the supportive relationships and environments they need for their successful pursuit of health and well-being. This is particularly important as our nation struggles with an obesity crisis, families struggle with work/life balance and individuals search for personal fulfillment. We bring families together, and offer sport, recreational and social networks that build relationships and strengthen bonds. Our programs are accessible, affordable and open to all faiths, backgrounds, abilities and income levels.
