What Your Support Makes Possible

Money you raise through your event helps the Y run vital programs, including:

Youth shelters

volunteers at shelter

Youth experiencing homelessness can find a safe place to sleep and wraparound supports at YMCA Sprott House and The Wagner Green YMCA. From mental health counselling to help finding work, youth access supports they need to get on track to a healthier future.

Camping and outdoor education

For youth experiencing unemployment, low academic achievement, and inactivity, YMCA Camp Pine Crest and YMCA Cedar Glen help build confidence, teach leadership and teamwork skills, and help them realize their true potential.

Financial assistance
