Our Mission and Philosophy

OUR MISSION

To instill values and provide opportunities for lifelong personal growth and the development of a healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

OUR FOCUS

Our community has needs, and the Y remains a central means to meeting them. We’ve always known that positive change only comes about when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. And that’s why we’re here. We have three areas of focus.

  • Youth Development – Nurturing the potential of children and teens
  • Healthy Living – Promoting health and well-being
  • Social Responsibility –  Fostering a sense of responsibility
