Our Vision

Envisioning the Future

As we move towards the next decade, the YMCA has a bold vision to be a regional leader in creating experiences that strengthen families through the continuation of Vision 2025. This vision allows us to address our community’s most urgent needs through our programs, services, and relationships.

What is Vision 2025?

Driven by a 2021 community assessment and feedback of the region’s challenges and most pressing needs—including mental health concerns, loneliness, childcare challenges, disadvantaged youth and food insecurity—the YMCA developed strategic priorities to further its efforts in youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Our 6 Targets:

  • Leadership
  • Volunteers
  • Innovation
  • Communities
  • Partnerships
  • Friendraising & Development

Nurturing the Potential of Youth

Ensure that our youth feel safe, are healthy, and are provided the opportunities needed to reach their fullest potential.

Improving the Region’s Well-Being

Working with insurance providers, employers and community partners, we can give community members access to the wellness services they need.

Providing Support to our Neighbors

Through the support of volunteers and donors, we can give back to our community while fostering a sense of inclusion.
