Mission Statement

Our Mission:
Your YMCA, reflecting its Judeo-Christian heritage, is an association of volunteers, members and staff open to and serving all, providing programs and services which develop spirit, mind, and body. Financial assistance is available based on need. The YMCA actively seeks to identify and involve those in need.

Our Core Beliefs

WE BELIEVE that all people, especially children deserve an equal chance to reach their full potential and should prepare themselves to connect to and serve community

Our Cause

Our cause defines us. We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.


We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.


We believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for life. Because of the Y, more young people in neighborhoods around the nation are taking a greater interest in learning and making smarter life choices. At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our hundreds of thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage.

communication was not good & was unable to participate because of that. I was promised to receive an email today with upcoming events & never got it.

Because I started interacting more as a child through this Chapter of the YMCA and they are accepting to all kids of all backgrounds.

It seems like a great opportunity to work with various age groups. I have never volunteered at a YMCA, but I would be more than happy to say one day, "I volunteered at the YMCA and it was great!"
