Have you ever thought about what would happen if we didn't have a Y?

We all need the Y.

There’s no place quite like the Y. We’re a vital part of the Blue Water Area: a welcoming place to learn new skills, connect with others, and access support in times of need. Our unique combination of services enriches the well-being of people of all ages and all walks of life. The Y is a wonderful place where you’ll find toddlers alongside seniors, families spending quality time together and neighbors reconnecting.

A safe place after school. Lessons about values, teamwork and the chance to try new things. Support from a caring role model. The Y provides children with meaningful opportunities to learn and grow.

Helping adults and children reach their potential is at the heart of what we do. As a leading nonprofit organization in our community, we teach life-changing skills and provide essential support in times of need.

In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y - whether it’s where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle. You can help others have life-changing experiences of their own.

With the help of people like you, the Y has touched the lives of nearly 20,000 people in the last year! Please consider making a gift to change lives for the better through the Y. The fitness equipment, pools and building provide the setting where we create the experiences and instill the values that help people change the odds!

The YMCA of the Blue Water Area is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your gift is deeply appreciated and tax-deductible.
