Mission Statement

The Y is a cause for strengthening community, committed everyday to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We advocate for vital resources such as improved tutoring programs for children or more access to healthy living resources in neighborhoods. We deliver real and lasting change.

The Y offers more than programs and services. We ensure that every individual has access to the essentials to learn, grow and thrive. Fitness classes don't just improve someone's physical healthy, they help unleash a new outlook on life. Youth soccer doesn't just teach a kid to score a goal; it teaches character and social skills for future leaders. This is what the really offers. Won't you be a part of our cause?
