Community Initiatives

Resources and support to move you in the right direction.

When someone in our community is facing difficult times, YMCA Community Initiatives works diligently to provide the necessary resources and supports they need to move forward in a positive direction.

A vibrant, healthy community offers opportunities for everyone. For the YMCA, that often means stepping forward with a new program or service to address specific and unique needs in our community. It may also mean reaching out, beyond our walls to deliver programs where they are needed most. We invite you to explore our Community Initiatives, which include:
