Mission & Cause

Our Mission

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



Our Promise/Cause

Strengthening the Foundations of Community

Our promise is our cause. We are a powerful association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. 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, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors in 10,000 communities to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
