Our Mission

Our YMCA is committed to building strong kids, individuals, families, and communities through programs and services that promote a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all, regardless of ability to pay.

The YMCA’s Commitment to America by 2012

Our Y is one of 2,686 YMCA’s across the country that has committed to extend our reach by directly engaging 25 million children and adults from all segments of our communities in achieving health of spirit, mind and body. We also committed to build on our 160-year charitable heritage of community leadership by being a catalyst for changes that enhance the well-being of all.

Every child and youth will develop positive values, an ethic of service and a desire to learn.

Every family will build stronger bonds, achieve greater balance and become more connected in their communities.

Every individual will build the relationships, knowledge and confidence to make healthy choices to improve their physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.

Our Strategic Plan (2008-2013)

  • We will double the number of volunteers in our organization
  • We will increase our annual contributed dollars to 20% of our total budget
  • We will create a meaningful increase in positive awareness of the YMCA’s mission within our service area
  • We will maximize delivery of the mission throughout our service area

Our Success

Supporting Youth Development

The YMCA offers more than 45 different programs that are whole-child, age appropriate and build the developmental assets necessary for all children to thrive. Last year we served more than 7,200 children.

Supporting Families

The YMCA engages family members in programs and provides services that support a joyful, holistic approach to family development. Our YMCA supported families by providing quality child care, early childhood development, after school and camping programs to ensure the health and safety of almost 1,400 children while families were working. Our YMCA provides a variety of other family strengthening programming such as Prime Time, Family Fitness, Adult and Children Yoga, Kids Night Out, Fathers Support, Family Fun Day, and Family Nights.

Improving Individual Lives
