Find it Fast

Join the Y in doing our part for the military families who serve this country every day.

Juleen Hernandez
How the Y keeps her sane.


It’s Friday at noon and Juleen Hernandez heads toward Sherry Welch’s Hard Work Conditioning class. “I’m here pretty much every day for a class at noon,” she says, “except for Wednesdays. My girls like to ride in the bike trailer on Wednesdays.”

The Y has figured prominently in Juleen’s existence for the past three months. Her husband, Kevin, is in the United States Marine Corps and is serving his second tour abroad until at least October. “He can’t tell me where he is,” she says, but adds that, on this tour, she only gets to talk to him for about ten minutes every two weeks. “It’s hard. He’s missed both pregnancies and lots of milestones.”

Give to the Y

With a focus on youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, strengthening communities is our cause. At the Y, we believe that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.

When you give to the Y, you are funding life-changing programs and opportunities that help thousands of children, adults and families in the North State to learn, grow and thrive.

Your support helps the Y deliver on our commitment:

  • To nurture the potential of youth through confidence building activities at camp, providing academic enrichment in safe afterschool programs, and teaching foundational skills and values in our child care programs
  • To improve the community's health and well-being through combating obesity and chronic disease by providing the support and programs people need to make positive change
  • To give back and support our neighbors by empowering people with the resources to improve their lives and connect and contribute to the community
  • To offer health and wellness programs to children, adults and families who need financial assistance

What your Dollar will Do

  • $ 3,000  Makes life enriching activities such as canoeing, hiking and fishing available to one cabin full of kids who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend our Camp McCumber summer camp.
  • $ 1,200  Gives 3 children a safe place to go after school for one year, where they will make new friends and strengthen values.
  • $480      Provides a life-changing opportunity for a team of kids to learn skills, sportsmanship and teamwork through participation in the Y's youth sports programs.
  • $300      Builds self-confidence and could possibly save the lives of 4 North State children by providing swim lessons and safety programs.
  • $180      Puts a smile on five young people's face by giving them the chance to participate in social, health or educational classes and learn important values such as caring, honesty, responsibility and respect.
