Mission Statement

To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.


The Y is us. You, me, your family, your neighbors, your coworkers, your children’s schoolmates. Together, we laugh, learn, sweat, swim, socialize, find the support we need and share that support with others in need. And it works, because we do it together. As a locally based nonprofit organization, our number one priority is to serve this community.

Lead our boards of directors and committees, raise funds to ensure the Y is accessible to all members of the community and advocate for the Y’s efforts to influence policies and initiatives that positively impact societal issues of importance to the nation, and your community.
