A Better Us means that we are better as a community when equity takes center stage. We work to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We denounce prejudice, racism, intolerance, and all other forms of discrimination.
The Y welcomes everyone to grow in a healthy spirit, mind and body; achieving goals, deepening relationships, and finding a true sense of belonging. We welcome all ages, abilities, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, races, religions, beliefs, and socio-economic statuses. A Better Us means everyone has an equitable seat at the table. To do this, the Y is finding ways to uplift disadvantaged members of our community.
The Better Us Initiative is the overarching umbrella for the following programs and services:
Donate today to help the Y send disadvantaged teens to college, connect minority families with a healthy support network, and build bridges to move our communities from inclusive and tolerable to welcoming and colorful!
