Community Impact

We take pride in the work we do together in our community. Our stories of impact go well beyond one person. And every year, there are new stories to tell.

The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected, and secure children, adults, families, and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good.

Together, we accomplish so much more:

Y Impact Stories

“Upon arriving, I was very shy and anxious as usual. However, as the week progressed I made lots of friends and came out of my shell thanks to the counselors and my cabin. I tried a lot of new things and found new skills that I didn’t know existed. I had more fun than expected and I hope to come next year” –Camp Miller Camper Kristin

“The Y motivates me! My husband and I love the classes. They are challenging and fun! It’s so easy to come down here…We also love the social aspect – meeting and connecting with other members. They are our friends. The instructors have become friends as well. We miss the people and classes when we aren’t here.”  –Long Time Member Louise

“My three year old takes swim lessons. It’s great during the work week to have easy access and it’s a convenient way to allow my daughter to learn to swim. It fits a lot of my family’s needs.  We are able to come as a family. My husband and I can work out and spend time together. The childcare really makes the Y a great option for us.”  Family Membership Megan
