Social Responsibility Highlights

Safe Spaces


More than 3,000 children benefited from assistance, providing a safe and enriching environment during time away from school, helping to close the achievement gap.

Preventing Learning Loss


Over 6,500 children attended a summer camp, where preventing summer learning loss was just one benefit of their time at camp.

Safe in the Water


Over 9,500 people gained confidence while learning critical water safety and swim skills. 



Over 800 volunteers shared 16,773 hours participating in service projects and gifting their time to their community through various programs and projects to help build up their neighbors and community. 

Access for All


$231,834 in contributions from United Way donors helped make sure the Y is open and available to everyone in our community. 

Adaptive Adventure


With the opening of YMCA JT's Camp Grom in the summer of 2018, wounded veterans, Gold Star Families and adults/children with differing abilities now have a place to grow and thrive together through adventure, in an adaptive and inclusive environment.
