Annual Support Campaign
What makes a community strong? Many things—dedicated individuals and organizations working toward a common goal, people helping each other, a strong sense of values and the feeling that we all belong. Every day, the Y plays an important part in improving the lives and strengthening communities all over the greater St. Louis region.
For Patty, a single mother of three including two with developmental disabilities, the Y has been a lifesaver. "The YMCA has not only allowed me the opportunity for some much deserved time-outs, but given my children a place to feel safe, challenged and accepted," she said. "They are developing character with the help of phenomenal group of people at our YMCA."
With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y reaches out to people of all income levels, races, religions and abilities. Join the many people who see the value of the Y.
