Vision 2030


Vision 2030

About Our Strategic Plan

In the last three years alone, we've observed significant changes in the needs and priorities of our community. In light of these shifts, the Y is dedicated to broadening its reach and ensuring fair access to programs and resources that address community needs. Our vision is centered on enhancing the well-being of individuals and communities for ALL, with a focus on fostering positive youth development.

Working on a vision plan takes people with different strengths and talents together toward a common goal. We are excited to share our work with staff members, Y members, parents, youth, community partners, and even those who may not currently engage with the Y. Join us as we embark on Vision 2030 – a journey where everyone plays a crucial role, from our dedicated staff to our valued members and community partners."

The Vision Behind Vision 2030

Critical Community Concerns

The Y is focused on serving all and meeting the needs of vulnerable and underserved groups— in particular, those struggling due to a lack of resources, aging populations, those with diverse abilities, and those experiencing bias/discrimination. 

We aim to support all in areas such as the following: 

  • The needs faced by today’s youth, teens, and families, including the need for role models and positive activities for youth after school. 

  • The need for a safe haven from any type of bullying or violence. 

  • The need to educate and prevent child abuse and neglect. 

  • The need to increase access to care to address health disparities. 

  • Challenges in holistic well-being, including mental health, chronic disease, and diabetes prevention. 

  • Individuals and families experiencing economic, literacy, or educational challenges. 

  • The need to support those with diverse abilities.
