Sarpy County is growing at a rapid pace. With a projected 10.7% growth in population from 2012 to 2017*, the needs of the community are expanding. The Gretna-area community in particular is developing in a fast pace, with a reported 16.7% growth in population from 2010-2011**.

In our 150 years of supporting the Omaha metro area, we have seen first-hand the impact a Y can have on a community. The Y is much more than a gym and a pool. The Y gives adults, children, seniors and families a place to be inspired. A place to grow and thrive. A place to be strengthened and to strengthen each other. Together.

The Gretna community has shown their support of a Y.
