YMCA Community Survey Results

In an effort to meet the vision of the YMCA and continue to strengthen our community, the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties commissioned the YMCA of the USA (or national organization) to study the compelling needs of the community in order to inform our strategic plans. The online survey instrument was distributed throughout the community February – March 2018 to best identify the top community needs in the areas of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. A total of 750 community members responded to the survey! Thank you to everyone was able and willing to share your insight and opinions with us.


At the YMCA of Cass and Clay Counties, strengthening community is our cause. But a strong community doesn’t just happen, it’s the result of steady leadership, teamwork and stewardship. We are here working every day, making sure that individuals and families, regardless of age, income or background, have the resources and support they need to learn, grow and thrive. We make a difference by investing in our kids, our health and our community by focusing on three key areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.
