GIVING BACK AND PROVIDING SUPPORT TO OUR NEIGHBORS
As the leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y works side-by-side with our neighbors everyday to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. It is through the support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders that the Y is able to provide programs that strengthen the community and positively impact individuals, children and families.
The Y is a cause for strengthening community, working tirelessly to nurture the potential of children, improving the nation’s health and well-being and supporting our neighbors. When you advocate with the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change for your family, friends and community.
PIONEERING HEALTHIER COMMUNITIES
Pioneering Healthier Communities (PHC) is a signature initiative of the Y-USA. Launched in 2004, PCH focuses on policy and environmental changes in communities to promote healthy lifestyles with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as corporate and foundation donors.
YMCA programs nurture the potential of children, provide healthy living and foster a sense of social responsibility. When you give to the Y, you are funding the life-changing programs that help thousands of children, adults and families in the Alleghany Highlands region to learn, grow and thrive, regardless of age, income or background.
