With the contributions of people like you, financial support can make every facet of our community stronger. In 2023, support has accomplished:

  • Changing the lives of 50 Parkinson’s participants and their families in the Steady and Strong Parkinson’s Wellness Program.
  • Serving over 145,000 meals to Jackson area youth through the YMCA’s Food Program.
  • Teaching 270 youth swim lessons for free so they could learn key water safety techniques.
  • Having over 225 of youth in afterschool childcare and summer day camp programs.
  • Teaching 94 active older adults fall prevention techniques.


With your support, the Y can:


  • Implement LiveStrong at the YMCA: A program for cancer survivors that provides individualized programming and a support group.
  • Reach more individuals living with Parkinson's and their families by investing more in the Steady and Strong program outreach
