The YMCA Mission

Our Mission is to put Christian principles into practice though programs that build a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.
Our Goal is to deliver positive change, and bring people together to bridge the gaps in community needs. We believe everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow & thrive.

Our Focus is on 3 specific areas:

Youth Development - Nurturing the potential of every child and teen
At the Y, children and teens learn values and positive behaviors, and can explore their unique talents and interests, helping them realize their potential. That makes for confident kids today and contributing and engaged adults tomorrow.

Healthy Living - Improving the nation's health and well-being
At the Y, it’s not about the activity you choose as much as it is about the benefits of living healthier on the inside as well as the outside. It’s about maintaining a balanced spirit, mind and body.

Social Responsibility - Giving back and providing support to our neighbors
The generosity of others is at the core of the Y’s existence as a nonprofit. It is only through the support of our volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to support and give back to the communities we engage.
