Community Response Fund
Help heal our community by providing child care for first responders, feeding vulnerable kids, shelter and resources for at-risk youth, and seniors health outreach.
There's a bright future ahead, but the only way we’ll get there is together. Join us in healing our neighborhoods as we direct our community funding to these critical and essential services urgently needed to support the response and recovery of our region.
Help create connection and community with our senior members by volunteering! Conduct wellness check phone calls to senior members and track call information and outcomes according to required standards. Background check, security data training and short phone call training required.Learn more about our senior outreach volunteer opportunities here.
Donate today to help provide emergency childcare for first responders, increase our hunger initiatives for vulnerable children and families and provide resources for those experiencing homelessness and economic disruption. Together, we can be here for those who need us the most. Thanks for your support, we can't do this alone.
Your investments are enabling us to provide: child care for 356 children per week, over 7,000 meals per week to hungry kids, shelter for 330 young adults per week, and outreach to over 800 seniors per week. Thank you!
"All of our backup child care support disappeared instantly and left us scrambling. The Y was so fast in seeing the need and filling it. The relief I felt I just cannot explain." ~ First Responder
"Food banks have only provided us canned goods...The Y has been a blessing to us as they have been able to get us the fresh food we desperately needed." ~ Community Member
"My friends from the Y are among my closest companions. We can count on each other during this time of isolation, frequently visiting on the phone to keep spirits up." ~ Program Participant
"I have been doing online Y videos every day to keep my motivation going. Thank you for the great exercise videos and for the call to check-in on me." ~ Y Member
