To put christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
We are a dynamic association of men, women and children joined together by a shared commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. That's why our cause and our programs are based on the needs and interests that will strengthen our communities.
The Y is dedicated to building programs for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility that promote strong families, character values, youth leadership, community development and international understanding. The Y makes accessible the support and opportunities that empower people and communities to learn, grow and thrive by providing supportive and inclusive environments that nurture the potential of every youth and teen, improves the nation's health and well-being and provides opportunities to give back and support neighbors.
Each year, the Frankfort YMCA provides more than $200,000 in financial assistance. That assistance is possible because of the generosity of our donors. Every year, the Y staff and volunteers actively go into the community during our annual campaign to raise the dollars needed to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, gender, race, faith, ability level, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. Financial assistance helps keep the Y available for kids and families who need us most and provides programs that are responding to pressing community needs. 100% of all donations go directly toward providing life-changing experiences that will have a meaningful, enduring impact right in our Frankfort community.
Because our mission is to serve ALL people, financial assistance is made available to any individual or family who wants to participate in a YMCA program or activity but who cannot afford the fee.
