The Y is for Healthy Living

The Y supports thousands of youth, adults, and families by providing guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, and body.

Family Time

Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y. We are a place where they can find respite from social, economic and educational challenges, and learn how to overcome them. We have a fundamental desire to provide opportunities for every family to build stronger bonds, achieve greater work/life balance, and become more engaged with their communities.

Family programs like the Y-Guides, Y-Princesses and Y-Papoose programs are unique opportunities for fathers to spend uninterrupted time with their children. Fathers, sons and daughters participate in fun and educational activities that help them grow closer together. Activities range from camping, canoeing, archery, crafts, and games to special events and outings organized by the Y.
