Impact Highlights

Letter From Leadership

Dear Friend,

As we strive to be a vital center for community in each of our seven branches, our YMCA focuses on our ability to welcome and serve. In this retrospective of our impact in 2018, we see this focus as a driving force to our success. We have grown both facilities and programs, always with a goal of serving more members of the community and welcoming the rich diversity of our shared humanity.

The Metro Y is committed not only to opening the door to everyone who knocks, but to being able to extend a hand to help them in. In support of this commitment, in 2018, we awarded $1.8 million dollars in direct financial assistance to members to engage in YMCA programs.

It is an exciting time at our Y, as we revitalize our focus on communicating our cause driven mission. We are expanding the definition of the YMCA and welcoming you and others to partner with us. In 2018, we set the stage for the future of our Y by completing the development of a 3-year Commitment to Cause strategic plan.

Our mission to strengthen community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility is not three distinct pillars, but rather a tightly woven safety net for our communities. Service extends beyond members and last year an additional $1.5 million in additional community benefit programs were provided by our YMCA to the local public.

As you explore the following impact report, you will find evidence of our determination to remain relevant and responsive in today’s ever-changing society. Assessing need and transforming the nature of our work in order to serve is why the Metropolitan YMCA of the Oranges has been a vital community asset for over 134 years.
