As an advocate for youth, health and philanthropy, the Y has a long-standing track record and on-the-ground presence to address the community’s most pressing social issues.

We believe that real change can only come about when we all work together. That’s why, we work every day, side-by-side with our neighbors and community leaders to help move people and communities forward.

It is through fellow advocates and community collaboration that we can take our cause further ensuring that every person, irrespective of age, ability or income, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
