Mission & Vision

Our Mission Statement

The West Suburban YMCA, a charitable non-profit organization, strengthens the foundations of our community by supporting youth development, healthy living and social responsibility for all.

Our Community Benefit

We rely on the generosity of our community to enable us to keep our programs open and accessible to all. Today, we are stronger than ever... we serve more individuals and families, provide more community benefits and financial aid, have more strategic partners and are involved in the community more than any time in our history.

The West Suburban YMCA, founded in 1877 in Newton Corner, is among the oldest YMCAs in the United States. 

Our staff and volunteers deliver on our cause to strengthen community. Whether building confidence in kids, encouraging someone to achieve a health goal, or bringing people from different backgrounds together to improve neighborhoods, every connection made contributes to a better "us." Working together for good is who we are.

As a charitable community-based organization, the mission of our Y is to ensure we serve ALL with programs and services that strengthen individuals and the community at-large. We recognize that our continued success and service to our community is achieved only through the generosity of our donors; the time, talent and treasure invested by our volunteers; the loyalty exhibited by our members and program participants; and the efforts of our mission-driven staff.
