The Y is a cause-driven organization and leading nonprofit in strengthening community. We believe a strong community can only be achieved through a shared commitment to nurture the potential of kids, promote healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility. We believe all kids have potential and should have the opportunity to discover who they are, express themselves, and be nurtured in all their possibility. We provide programs that create safe, authentic, and positive relationships and that teach life skills and values. We believe that everyone has the desire to be well and that well-being is best cultivated by providing supportive relationships and environments.
We provide a welcoming, safe and supportive environment for all ages to become healthier and stay well in spirit, mind, and body. We believe that we have a duty to try to help where help is needed, and that with support, resources and guidance, people can improve their own lives and the lives of others. We provide social services for people facing considerable obstacles, and also opportunities for people to volunteer, engage, advocate and donate, as well as a caring environment where people know they're not alone.
