Health and Wellness doesn’t stop at our doors


Your Y is dedicated to make sure our members and the community stays HEALTHY AT HOME. Through virtual wellness offerings we are keeping families, seniors, and individuals active, engaged, and thriving. Through wellness check-in calls with members, your Y is making sure their needs are met and connecting people to critical governmental and nonprofit community services.

Committed to feeding youth in our community


One in seven children in the U.S. is fighting hunger. Because of COVID-19-related school closings, these kids are even more at risk. Your Y has mobilized with its community partners to set up Grab & Go and Drive-Through meal sites to ensure kids and teens have access to nutritious food while maintaining social distance. These are youth who wouldn’t otherwise get a meal. Commit to ending hunger with us.

Critical Childcare Icon

Caring for the children of those who are on the front lines caring for us


The Y is providing school-aged youth with enrichment programming in partnership with the school district and providing priority child care to emergency and essential workers. Through our Early Childhood Development Centers in Hermantown and Grand Marais, we are continuing to care for our little friends, while their families care for us. As always, the Y is dedicated to removing barriers to care and financial assistance continues to be available to those who need us most.
