THE Y FOR
We focus our work in three key areas, because nurturing the potential of kids, helping people live healthier, and supporting our neighbors are fundamental to strengthening communities.
Building Tomorrow Together
The Y makes strengthening our communities our cause. We count on the generosity of our donors to help us nurture life lessons in kids, foster health and well-being among people of any age, bring people together to pursue passions old and new and provide mutual support for everyone in our neighborhoods.
Committed to providing over $6 million in financial assistance and subsidy each year to help people of all ages and from all walks of life be more healthy, confident, connected and secure, the YMCA of San Diego County recently launched the 2013 Annual Support Campaign. The campaign continues through March.
Read more about how the generosity of community donors keeps the Y available for kids and families who need it most.
