The Y is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all. Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our  bonds are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections.  That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.

Every day, the Y supports kids, adults, seniors and families with programs  that protect, teach, connect,  heal, nourish and encourage. Everything we do helps empower communities and the “us” who live in them to thrive.

Your support helps youth and families live healthier and happier lives. From enabling kids to do better in school through our School Age Child Care Enrichment Programs, to providing seniors with opportunities to connect with others with our weekly SCAN Program, everything the Y does is towards making “us”  – as individuals and a community – better.

When you donate to the YMCA of Greater Monmouth County, you make the communities of Monmouth and Middlesex Counties better and the “us” who live in them stronger.

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential.
We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development—all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty,
respect and responsibility.

Healthy Living

We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our
community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.

Donate for a better us.

Every dollar donated to the YMCA of Greater Monmouth County has a lasting impact on the people of our community.
