Annual Campaign – Troy
With your support, we’re building a stronger community one family, one child, one senior at a time.
From providing safe, welcoming care to a child whose mom has lost her job, to providing help to a father who’s survived cancer, to providing fellowship to a senior whose spouse has passed, every day, our Y is making a real difference in your community.
At this moment, there are thousands of individuals depending on us. That’s why your support is critical. To keep helping those in need in Troy, we need your help.
From helping infants develop trust and security, to helping pre-schoolers learn about their world to helping school-age students build confidence, and a positive view of their self worth, we help children develop into caring young adults.
More than 3,017 families benefit from membership financial assistance. Of those 535 children receive assistance for school-age childcare.
Camp is all about having fun, and so much more. It’s about trying new things, making new friends, developing confidence, and learning new skills. Most of all, it’s about teaching children he value of caring about themselves and others.
3,566 children enjoyed the Y summer camp. Of those, 370 were able to attend because of financial assistance.
Through programs like Youth & Government, we’re teaching students in middle and high school the value of making a positive difference in our community by working with out political system.
Our Black & Latino Achievers program is a leadership, career readiness, and college preparation program for youth. Caring mentors provide teens with exposure to diverse career options, and help them develop life skills needed to become successful in college and beyond.
Health and Wellness
Our Y provides a host of unique programs to help those dealing with chronic diseases.
Your donation helps our residents live healthier with the help of life-changing programs, like LIVESTRONG at the YMCA which helps cancer patients find their new normal.
Much more than a building in your neighborhood, we are your neighbor. Look for us on the playground offering programs that keep teens safe. Look for us as we welcome moms and dads who need help with childcare, adults who are battling chronic health challenges, or seniors who feel isolated and alone. You’ll find us where you need us, out and about in Troy.
