Our Capital Campaign
Through a 2016 Community Needs Assessment, we learned that area residents wanted services which engage the whole family.
Out of 553 responses:
|19%||indicated the availability of services aimed at engaging the entire family was important|
|34%||responded that supporting youth in practicing positive habits that include physical activity and healthy eating was important.|
|29%||responded that having a presence of community spaces where youth can develop connections with others was important|
|27%||responded the availability of non-athletic programs that draw out youth skills, creativity and confidence was important.|
After this Community Needs Assessment, we began to explore the idea of a Capital Campaign. In 2017, we conducted a Market Study that interviewed 400 non-member households and 100 YMCA member households. Some of the recommendations that came from that study showed the following:
|Expand the Wellness Center, adding more machines|
|Add a Multi-Purpose Studio/Classroom for Group Exercise|
|Establish a Family Adventure Center (New indoor playground)|
|Establish Family Changing Locker Rooms|
After conducting the Market Study in 2017, we did a Feasibility Study in 2018 that showed we could actually raise the funds and move forward with a Capital Campaign, leading us to where we are today.
Our Capital Campaign was halted in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but was reinstated on November 9, 2020.
