Our Cause Defines Us
We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when
we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community
is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to
make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background,
has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
Our Strength is in Community
The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because in 10,000
neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and
partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change.
