Our Cause Defines Us
We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the YMCA, strengthening community is our cause. 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 learn, grow and thrive.
Our Strength Is In Community
The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That’s because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, the Y has the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver, positive change. In Lincoln, we’ve been listening and responding to our community for over 140 years. The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge gaps in community needs. The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
Our Impact Is Felt Every Day
With a mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all, our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good. Learn more
