STRENGTHENING OUR COMMUNITY FOR OVER 140 YEARS

The Y is the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by connecting all people to their potential, purpose and each other. We focus on empowering young people, improving health and well-being, and inspiring action in and across communities.

WHO WE ARE

The Hampshire Regional YMCA has been providing wellness and family services to our community since 1880, with a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. From athletics to education, wellness services to safe spaces, the Y helps to strengthen the health of our community. Since it’s inception, the Hampshire Regional YMCA has provided valuable resources to nurture the potential of individuals, families and the entire community.

INVESTING IN OUR HEALTH AND OUR COMMUNITY

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Strong communities don’t just happen; they’re the result of dedicated leadership and stewardship of our mission and core values: Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. In partnership with our donors, the Hampshire Regional YMCA delivers programs that improve overall health, prevent chronic disease onset, combat social isolation and promote youth development. It is critical to our mission to ensure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to thrive.
