Our Focus

We believe that to bring about meaningful change in individuals, families and our community, we must be focused and accountable. At the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties, we measure the success of our cause by how well we engage in our three areas of focus: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.

Defining our areas of focus:

Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.

Healthy Living: Improving the nation’s health and well-being.

Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

The YMCA is for everyone. Our programs, services and initiatives enable kids to realize their potential, offer ways for families to have fun together, empower people to be healthier in spirit, mind and body; prepare people for employment, welcome and embrace newcomers and help foster a community-wide service ethic. And that’s just the beginning.
