Forever In Service. For a Better Us. 

There is no doubt that there has never been a year like 2020 before and with any luck, there won’t be one again. This complicated year has demanded great sacrifices from each of us and we're proud of how we have not only weathered the storm, but showed up for our community, and changed the way our kids, families, adults, and most vulnerable survived this pandemic. It is because of the commitment of our staff, board members, donors, volunteers, members, and friends that we were able to reach and show up for our community in every way.

Food banks have only been able to provide us canned goods, and we could not afford fresh items like fruit and vegetables. The Y has been a blessing to us as they have been able to get us the fresh food we desperately needed.

My 12 year old son watched the Unleashing Potential series with me as he is a huge Paolo Banchero fan and for him to hear his story and the stories of others of what they have been through led to some hard but good conversations in our house last night.

I like the YMCA Prevent Diabetes class because it works! I am learning new habits I want to continue in the future. Since I started this program seven months ago, I have lost 24lbs and continue to lose more. My A1C is 1.2 points lower than it was when I started. I like the class material, we focus on a specific area each week and share ideas with each other.

Day camp was a magical and important experience for my kids and is a shining example of how in-person education is not only possible, but beneficial in the era of COVID.

The Y community lifted me up and gave me hope. And here we are, it’s 2021, the fear, uncertainty and isolation of the last year is slowing fading. All through this time the Y has given hope, solid leadership and tangible resources. I’m proud and grateful to be a member of the YMCA community and support the Y’s work with my time and my resources.

Equity and Justice for All.

We are forever grateful to our staff, members, donors, partners, and elected officials who stood by us this year to support equity and justice for all. This support manifests as an investment in the future we all want. One where all people, especially the young, are encouraged to reach their full potential in spirit, mind, and body.
