Our Mission

To put Christian principals into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

Our Cause

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That’s why we focus our work in three areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Our Beliefs

  • We believe that when we devote our full strength to the Y’s mission and cause, work in partnership with others, and build on our history of innovation, we can address the most pressing issues of our time unlike any other organization.
  • We believe all people have potential. We believe active and connected families make for active and connected communities.
  • We believe in a holistic approach to development, promoting healthy spirit, mind, and body.
  • We believe that in a diverse world, we are stronger when we are inclusive and our doors are open to all.
  • We believe in honoring our mission, living our cause, acting in accordance with our values, and placing the greater good above self.
