We work to make sure every child, family and community has what they need to achieve their best.
As a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, the Y was created in response to social challenges and remains to this day a lifeline in communities around the world. The Y understands the challenges that keep individuals from reaching their full potential and responds with services and support which help people to be self-reliant, productive and connected to the community. Here in the Omaha metro community, the YMCA of Greater Omaha provides support through services focused on critical areas, such as child welfare, community health, classroom readiness, environmental education, quality of life or family services.
The metro Omaha area is a unique, diverse, and growing community. Though our city is developing, we continue to face challenges that create a greater need than ever for the YMCA. Vulnerable communities are seeing increased poverty, leaving many families unable to provide for themselves. Low-income youth miss participating in team-building sports, young children lack educational development for future success, and families are unable to focus on healthy lifestyles.
But where society falls short, the YMCA of Greater Omaha steps in.
