Thank you for being there for children, young people and families in your community.

This Community Report is not only about the YMCA. This Community Report is first and foremost about the difference you are making in peoples’ lives.

Maybe it doesn’t seem like much… And yet!
For a child who is on his own after school,
For a young person who is having serious problems at home,
For a sedentary adult who can go a week without seeing anyone,
For a family who can’t afford activities for their children,
It means a lot.

You are giving children who are struggling a chance to succeed in school and in life.
You are getting kids off the street and allowing them to reach their full potential.
You are encouraging adults and families to stay active and connect with their community.
You are lending a hand to all these people when they need it most, and are helping them overcome life’s challenges.
