When you donate to the Greater Holyoke YMCA, you make our community better and the “us” who live in them stronger.
All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young
people as an opportunity for learning and development—all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
We help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve
their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.
With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in
return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
The Y is now…as it has always been…a place of possibility and promise for all. Unfortunately, in times when the true power of “us” is unknown to many and our bonds
are fraying, we must do even more to enhance our human connections. That’s why the Y passionately focuses on strengthening communities.
