The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. Working locally, we focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being and inspiring action in and across communities.
The Y’s mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
To achieve this mission, we strive to:
Be community centered. For nearly 160 years, we’ve been listening and responding to our communities.
Bring people together, connecting people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.
Nurture potential, because everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
Maintain a local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.
Areas of focus:
To bring about meaningful change in individuals and communities, we must be focused and accountable. At the Y, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage communities in our three areas of focus:
Youth Development—nurturing the potential of every child and teen
Healthy Living—improving the community's health and well being
Social Responsibility—giving back and providing support to our neighbors
The Y is committed providing equal access to its programs, facilities, and enjoyment without regard to race, ability, creed, national origin and sex. We celebrate the presence of differences that make each person unique. We intentionally engage and develop all members of the Y community. And we strive to connect and serve populations at home and around the world. They Y will make reasonable accommodations whenever possible to meet special needs
Renovation and Expansion Project:
It is very likely that the Clifton Springs Family YMCA is the oldest purpose-built YMCA building still in use in the United States, which is why we are overdue on our renovation project. The refreshed facility will achieve the YMCA mission through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. One of the greatest misconceptions about the YMCA is that the Y is just a building with childcare and a gym. The reality is that the YMCA is a powerful agent of change focused on strengthening our community. The YMCA is expanding its services to meet the needs of more individuals, families, children, and seniors. Our project is set to be completed in early 2023.
We focus on: Health, Education
Where we are: Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Seneca, Wayne, Yates
