As the largest non-profit committed to strengthening community, the Y knows that communities are strongest when all members have the chance to belong, grow and thrive.

We are thrilled to report strong membership growth of 18% in 2023, allowing us to serve nearly 80,000 members as a trusted space to discover new passions, receive support and find community.

Through our Financial Assistance Program, we awarded more than $2.2MM to connect local children, seniors and families to life-changing programs and services at the Y. Thanks to the support of our generous community, we ensured that no one was turned away from childcare, programs or membership due to an inability to pay.

2023 was a year of change and growth for YGBW. Our Board of Directors worked closely with leadership from Y-USA and the YGBW Senior Leadership team to provide stability as we transitioned to a new President & CEO and adopted new strategic priorities. We committed to a $1.4MM financial investment in Teen Development, Adaptive Programs and Health Innovation that will fuel growth across our organization and our community into 2024 and beyond.

Without access to childcare, parents are unable to work, employers are unable to grow, and our local communities suffer. As the largest provider of affordable and reliable childcare in the county, we provided vital childcare services to 4,500 local children in 2023, enabling families and our economy to flourish.

As we set the course for 2024, we look forward to partnering across our great community to ensure that all have a chance to belong, grow and thrive – whether inside the doors of the Y or out in the community.
