EMPOWERING YOUR COMMUNITY 

The YMCA of the Golden Crescent has been responding to the needs of individuals and families in the Crossroads community since 1902.

Strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs.

Your Support Helps the Y Deliver on Our Commitment...

  • To nurture the potential of youth through building confidence at camp, academic enrichment in safe afterschool programs or foundational skills and values in our child care programs
  • To improve the nation’s health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change
  • To offer programs and services to children, adults and families who need financial assistance

ANNUAL FRIEND OF YOUTH CAMPAIGN

Our ability to support the community is under a greater threat than ever before, while our facilities were forced to be closed and programs suspended. Your contribution to the Y today ensures the Y will be here tomorrow.

Whether due to unemployment, poor health, financial hardship or special circumstance, people struggle to provide for their families. We need your help to ensure that no one is denied a chance to participate because of an inability to pay. Only by working together can we give more kids the opportunity to grow strong in spirit, mind and body.

Contributions received from the Friend of Youth Annual Campaign fund the growing number of scholarships awarded to individuals and families in need of vital Y programs and services.
