Our Commitment to Child Safety

Ensuring children are safe from abuse and able to learn, grow, and thrive is the highest priority of the Y. We are committed to creating programs that protect children from abuse, but we are also committed to providing our families and community with information to keep kids safe. 


As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the Y provides crucial programs and services to more than 232,000 people every year. With the help of generous donors, we are able to provide more than 300 homeless youth safe, stable housing, over 235,000 healthy meals to school-age youth, and more than $12.2 million in financial assistance to ensure everyone has a chance to succeed and belong at the Y.
