Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut


"Building a Stronger Community"
The Campaign for the Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut

The Regional YMCA of Western Connecticut is
dedicated to building strong families and
healthier communities. For more than 150 years, the Y has been an integral part of our very diverse and complex region; serving its residents in a leadership capacity.

Throughout its history, the Y has remained a consistent and constructive gathering place in the lives of thousands of children, teens, families and active older adults serving more than 12,500 persons annually.

The Y has four freestanding facilities all
dedicated to youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. We are the area's largest provider of programs and services which include a full service fitness facility, early childhood education, after school programming, day camps, arts & humanities and health and wellness programs for all ages and levels of ability.

Demand for programs and services at the Y have grown tremendously in recent years. Many of our facilities and programs are at maximum capacity. Important initiatives in the areas of obesity and chronic disease, bridging the achievement gap and summer learning loss, water therapy and aquatic programming are among our most pressing issues for the future.

To address these most pressing issues, the Y has developed an organizational master plan which includes capitalizing on our most underutilized asset, our 14 acre Greenknoll campus. The expansion of this campus will position the organization for long term success by meeting the pressing demand for services and providing greater access to all of our constituencies throughout our 22 town radius.

The Y has launched an ambitious capital campaign, "Building a Stronger Community" which will dramatically transform our organization and allow us to serve thousands of additional families for many years to come.
