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 everyone and we are 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.

The experiences between the youth today and Dr. Tommie C. Smith at the Olympics in 1968 are not all that different. They continue to fight through many of the same struggles and racism that was present years ago and they continue to be role models at the same time. I was also able to have my 12 year old son watch it 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 appreciate the youth being willing to share.

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.

Forever Grateful.

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