Our Cause

MISSION

The YMCA of Longview is dedicated to put the principles of love, respect, honesty, responsibility and service into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all individuals and families in our communities. We welcome men and women, boys and girls of all incomes, faiths and cultures.

OUR CAUSE

The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. That’s because a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.

  • The Y is community centered. For more than 125 years, we’ve been listening and responding to our communities.
  • The Y brings people together. We connect people of all ages and backgrounds to bridge the gaps in community needs.
  • The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
  • The Y has local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.

OUR HISTORY

As the one of SW Washington’s leading nonprofits committed to helping people and our community succeed, our contributions are both far-reaching and intimate—from influencing our culture during times of profound social change to the individual support we provide an adult learning to read.

By nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the city’s health and well-being, and supporting and serving our neighbors, the Y ensures that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected and secure.

As we continue to serve our community, we are developing a time line of our rich history, and a snapshot of our many successes on behalf of the individuals and communities we are privileged to serve.
