The CDYMCA serves our community through four pillars: Racial Equity and Inclusion, Youth Development, Food Insecurity, and Health Disparities. We are committed to bringing people with diverse backgrounds and experiences together to listen, learn, and share.

On Saturday, May 14, we brought a group 30 refugee children and 8 adults from Rwanda, Congo, and Burma to Camp Chingachgook on Lake George for a day of safe relaxation and recreation as part of their transition to living in the Capital Region. We work closely with the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants to provide refugees with needed services to aid in their transition and begin new lives in the United States.

We continue our work with refugee families in Albany. To learn more or to get involved, contact Rifat Filkins.
