OUR PURPOSE

At the Y, we envision communities where all people achieve health, gain confidence, make connections and feel secure at every stage of life. The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other.

Working locally, we focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across communities.

By bringing together people from different backgrounds, perspectives and generations, we ensure that we all have access to the opportunities, relationships and resources necessary to learn, grow and thrive.

At the Y, we take immense pride in our work to strengthen communities and help all of us be our best selves. We provide a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, to eat well, and to give back. We give parents childcare, young adults job training, seniors a way to connect and children a safe place to go.

We believe that everyone—no matter who they are or where they’re from—deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential. Everything the Y does is in service of making sure people and communities thrive.
