For Youth Development
For Healthy Living
For Social Responsibility

Dear YMCA Friends,

Gordie and MikeWe are proud to share another exciting year of progress for kids and families in our community who have experienced the Y in their lives.  As we focus on nurturing youth development, energizing healthy living and inspiring social responsibility, our community is stronger and healthier because of the impact we make on the
lives of people. 

This year we also engaged in a stimulating process to create a vision for the Y for the future that can deepen this impact.  The strategic planning process produced four Big Ideas that will define our presence for years to come.

Do More, Do Better - Increase the impact and scope of our work in Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility (our impact areas)

Create Belonging - Inspire our communities to thrive and have a sense of purpose, creating the opportunity for belonging for all

One Y and One Voice - All voices of the YMCA believe in the mission and are proactive using a consistent voice as ambassadors of the cause in our communities

Abundance - Mobilize abundant human and financial resources to meet the mission of the Y in every community

Thanks for your continued support of the Y... with your help we will continue to strengthen the foundation of our community.
