With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is our cause. At the West Roxbury YMCA, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

When you give to the West Roxbury YMCA, you are funding life-changing programs that help children, adults and families in West Roxbury and neighboring communities to learn, grow and thrive.

Your support helps the West Roxbury Y deliver on our commitment:

  • To nurture the potential of youth through building confidence at camp, academic enrichment in safe afterschool programs, or foundational skills and values in our child care programs

  • To improve the nation’s health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and resources people need to make positive change

  • To give back and support our neighbors by empowering people with the resources to improve their lives and connect and contribute to the community, such as with job training, housing, newcomer services and opportunities to advocate for social change

  • To offer programs and services to children, adults and families who need financial assistance
