"Every Child Deserves a Y"

Every day, gifts to the Building Bridges Campaign make a difference in someone’s life. Each gift is used to provide assistance to people in our community who are experiencing financial difficulty. In fact, each year the need exceeds the funds that we raise and we draw on other sources to close the gap. The YMCA is committed to ensuring that our programs are available to anyone who would like to use them.

We believe that our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the YMCA is far more than that. We are a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.
