There's no place quite like the local community Y. For 146 years we have been a vital part of Northern California communities; a welcoming place to learn new skills, connect with others, and access support in times of need. Our unique combination of progress and services enriches the well-being of people of all ages and from all walks of life. At the Y, we strive to serve all and never turn away anyone who needs out services. We need your financial support to help us continue to keep that commitment.

LIVING OUR CAUSE
The Y, with your help, is committed to our building a strong tomorrow. We do so by focusing our efforts on developing youth, improving healthy living for all and fostering social responsibility to create positive and lasting personal and social change - the kind of change that can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y - whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle. With your help, the Y will continue to be here to help strengthen our community.
Creating opportunities is what the YMCA does each and every day thanks to generous contributors. Our annual Strong Kids Campaign makes it possible for all people, regardless of their income, to participate in YMCA programs and services that challenge their body, enhance their mind and strengthen their spirit.
As charitable investors, we all wonder how our individual gift could make an impact when the needs of our community seem so great. The Strong Kids Campaign helps one person at a time, one family at a time, or one program at a time. That means a gift to the Y, no matter its size, does make a difference in someone’s life.
We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential in spirit, mind and body. At the Y, we make that happen. Through the Y, thousands of youth are cultivating the values, social skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. That creates confident kids today and healthier, happier grownups tomorrow.
We believe that healthy living habits dramatically improve the quality of life for individuals and families. We're here to teach, encourage and support healthy living. We help children and adults understand and value their health and we nurture their well-being. The Y brings families closer together, encourages good health, and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests.
We believe that by helping our neighbors, all our lives are deeply enriched and our community is strengthened. We're here to work together with you and others to create a stronger, more vital and inclusive community. We've been listening and responding to critical community needs since day one. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being, welcoming and connecting diverse populations or advocating for healthier communities, the Y fosters the care and respect of all people need and deserve.
