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 work we do. Vulnerable neighborhoods near our city’s center are seeing increased poverty, leaving many families unable to provide for themselves.

Fortunately, where some see obstacles, we see opportunities for our members, volunteers, and staff to make a difference. From exercise to education; from volleyball to volunteerism; from preschool to preventive health, the Y doesn’t just strengthen our bodies – it strengthens the community.
