Social Responsibility

SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That’s why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of strengthening communities.

Our YMCA is part of the United Way of Jackson County and together we focus on education (helping every child reach their full potential), income (helping families be financially stable and independent), and health (helping children and youth engage in less risky behaviors).

Social Services

To bring about meaningful change, individuals need ongoing encouragement and tools. We’re here day-in and day-out to provide the resources our communities need to address the most pressing social issues. We work to make sure every child, family and community has what they need to achieve their best.

Global Services

At the Y, building a strong global community begins at home. Ys help young people develop cultural competencies. We help diverse populations connect to the community and individuals around the world gain access to life-changing resources and support. As an interconnected global network, the Y has the resources and solutions to build bridges and make our changing communities stronger.

Volunteerism & Giving

The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve.

Advocacy

We are a powerful ally and advocate for our communities. Our experience and strong community partnerships mean that we are able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues including child welfare, education and public health.
