Community Impact

Hats off to 2018!


The YMCA has served the Great Lakes Bay Region for 133 years, giving  us all a place to play, to learn, to be healthy, and give back. It provides parents with child care, young adults with self-esteem, and children a safe place to grow. Everything the Y does is in service of making our community better.

Every day, the Dow Bay Area Family YMCA gives our community the support it needs to thrive. In fact, the Y has given $1.5 Million back to our community since 2011.  Our Financial Assistance Program has  empowered thousands people in our community to become Y members, enroll in camps and after school programs, join youth sports leagues, and have a safe place to learn and build confidence.

From advocacy to food security, disease prevention to athletics, football to dance classes; everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhood and the people who live here.  Join us in living our Cause; to strengthen the foundations of our community through Youth Development, Healthy Living, and Social Responsibility.

For a better you. For a better community. For a better us.
