As an organization with more than a century of experience in caring for our community, the Valley of the Sun YMCA responds quickly to these challenges; creatively expanding our programs to meet our community when, where and how we are needed most.

Thanks to the generous support of our donors, we can continue to ensure the health, safety and well-being of every YMCA child and family. We are working to pave the way for a bright future to all of our community no matter their age, race, gender or socioeconomic status.

2024 Goals

Y programs provide experiences rich in social and emotional learning because youth can achieve their potential when they are nurtured by supportive adults.

In 2024, the Y will:

  • Provide 3 additional families with free childcare for the Lincoln YMCA Early Learning and After School programs.

The Y provides youth ages 16-24 with pathways to employment, shelter, food and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

In 2024, the Y will:

  • Provide 65 additional young adults ages 18-24 with emergency housing and community resources through the comprehensive PHX350 program. This program provides up to 90 days of emergency housing and resources to help homeless young adults secure essential services such as food, healthcare, mental health services, long-term housing, and workforce development.

Y membership and wellness programs can improve the health and well-being of our community to reduce chronic disease, obesity, and improve mental health.

In 2024, the Y will:

  • Provide YMCA memberships to 20 adults with disabilities so they can meet new friends and gain the support they need to live a more active and healthy lifestyle through our Y-ADAPT program.
