Our mission doesnâ€™t live in a building. Itâ€™s far too big and too important to be confined to just one place. Day in and day out, weâ€™re out there, in the community, helping kids and families, one at a time.
We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors throughout Chicagoland to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
The Y is for...
Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
Improving the nation's health and well-being.
Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.
