Strong Kids Campaign



All around us we see the images of children in need. These come in many forms – from food, clothing and shelter, to guidance and support. Whatever the needs, the YMCA is committed to improving the lives of the children and their families in our communities by providing safe places, caring and trained staff, and programs that teach life skills.  Whether it’s a place to go after school for a helping hand with homework, a place to learn leadership skills, or a place for the family to play and connect, the YMCA is there.
