Who We Are:
The Y is a leading nonprofit organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurture the potential of kids, healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Community is our cause. For nearly 160 years, we’ve worked to bring people of all backgrounds together to bridge gaps in our community and strengthen its foundation – one child, one family, one individual at a time.
At its core, the mission of the Y is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. We are more than just a swim and gym.
Our Areas of Focus:
Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
