2020 has been a year like no other in recent history. When the devastating effects of the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the country and landed on our doorsteps, we quickly mobilized to provide our community with essential services including childcare, connecting with seniors and food distribution. Thanks to the unwavering support of our members, volunteers and donors, our YMCA has been able to continue offering people a critical lifeline as we work to help our community recover and thrive. While traditional programs like summer day camp, swim lessons and youth sports may have looked a little different, the Y was still able to provide a sense of normalcy for youth to create lasting memories, remain active and reach their full potential.
At the end of 2020, the YMCA of Metropolitan Fort Worth welcomed Mike Brown as the new President and CEO. Mike brings over 18 years of extensive CEO experience to our YMCA and we are excited to have him leading our team.
A lot has changed at the Y over this past year, but our commitment has remained the same—to always be here for our community when people need us most, with open arms and caring hearts. No matter what challenges the future brings, we can overcome them together. Because the Y isn’t a building. It’s people – people from all backgrounds and walks of life who come together to improve their lives, nurture their families and strengthen their community, together.
A leading nonprofit partner throughout the country, the Y has the proven track record to move communities forward, just as we do here in greater Fort Worth.
As a charity, we work every day to address community needs and ensure that all are welcome and that no one is turned away for an inability to pay.
The Y provided nearly $7.3 million in total community benefit in 2020 including:
During 2020, 1,204 volunteers dedicated over 24,000 hours of time to serve our community through Y activities.
During a challenging year when routines seemed to change daily, one thing remained the same: the Y continued to provide a safe, enriching place for over 1,000 children to learn, grow and thrive. Year-round care, including preschool, afterschool and summer camp was essential in supporting childcare needs of working families. In 2020, the Y also provided Distance Learning to keep children socially engaged during the school year, while still receiving the benefits of online learning.
At the end of 2020, the Y introduced our NEW Y On the Fly program. An initiative of Y Feeds Kids, Y on the Fly seeks to deliver a “Y without walls” experience directly to our communities and will allow us to serve more neighborhoods, children and families than ever before. Our mobile Y, which launched in October, brings programs such as STEM, physical fitness, an inflatable gaga pit and free meals to youth at qualifying sites. It was also instrumental in delivering 500 holiday meals to neighbors in our community.
