STRONGER TOGETHER. More than ever, our community relies on the Y as a trusted source of support. A leading human services provider, we stand ready to comfort and serve our most vulnerable individuals, children and families. We are grateful for your support that enables the Y to be here for all and here for good.
The Y is a leading non profit organization that offers programs, services and initiatives focused on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, according to the unique needs of the communities it engages.
We’re guided by 5 core values: Caring | Honesty | Respect | Responsibility | Inclusion
At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. From low-impact exercise and chair classes, stretching and strength training to indoor cycling, water exercise, and yoga, you’ll find a group class that’s fun, supportive and keeps you moving at all ages.
Swimming is a life skill as well as great exercise and a challenging sport. We offer swim lessons, family swim, competitive swimming and swim programs for kids with special needs, so we can all safely enjoy the pleasures of an aquatic environment. Water exercise, adult swim lessons and adapted exercise for those with special abilities are here for all at the Y.
At the Y, we believe the values and skills learned early on are vital building blocks for quality of life and future success. We offer quality, affordable full-day and partial-day child care for infants through preschoolers, enabling parents and family members to go to work knowing their children are in safe, enriching place where they will learn, grow and thrive.
With a focus on safety, health, social growth and academic enhancement, Y school-age programs serve kindergartners through middle schoolers with a variety of programs and activities to explore and develop their interests and talents. Most importantly, children learn how to be their best selves and grow into confident kids today, who contribute to a greater community tomorrow.
At the Y, we believe sports and fun go hand in hand. Along with improving health, whenever teamwork is involved, there’s the added benefit of being connected to others. That’s why we offer so many sports and activities for all ages. With a game or sport to offer almost everyone, there’s no such thing as being too young or too old to get in the game and improve health.
Summer camp builds skills, develops character and strong social connection. Few environments are as special as camp, where kids become a community as they learn how to be independent and contribute to a group while engaging in physical, social and educational activities. Camp teaches a love for nature and the outdoors, builds character and leadership skills, and creates lasting friendships.
We’re More Than A Gym. We’re A Cause.
