For a better us.

2017 Annual Report

YMCA of Metro Chicago

 

Message from CEO & Board Chair

 

Richard H. Malone
President and CEO

Greg Nickele
Chairman of the Board

 

For 160 years, the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago has provided innovative, community-based solutions in safe, enriching environments that unite and encourage individuals and families to reach their full potential. As the needs of our neighbors shift and evolve, the Y adapts and assesses our programs and resources to determine the best and most sustainable ways to make positive change into the future.

Our mission is to develop strong children, families and communities across Metropolitan Chicago through academic readiness, character development, violence prevention, and fitness and healthy living. As we look back at 2017, we are grateful for the mission moments that happen every day, thanks to the passion and commitment of our donors, partners, volunteers, and staff. Our annual report features:

  • A mother who overcame fear to learn to swim
  • A new partnership that brings together youth and shelter dogs to build trust and confidence
  • Staff who used lifesaving skills gained on the job to save a member’s life
  • A multi-generational family of campers who give back to the Y

We share many more inspiring stories of transformation, hope, and giving in our online annual report.

Thank you for building a better us -- today and into the future.
