We work hard to see that every child, family and community has what they need to overcome obstacles and turn them into positive life changes. Everyday we strive to provide the resources our neighborhoods need to address some of the pressing social issues they face including; education, employment, substance abuse, housing and child welfare.
We believe in developing strong community, both home and abroad, and that is why we do our best to facilitate partnerships to share knowledge and resources about diverse histories and cultures in our own neighborhoods and overseas.
Volunteerism & Giving
The YMCA is sustained by the generosity of the communities we serve, and is at the core of our existence. We are only able to give back to our Gaston County community and provide the support we do through the help we receive from public and private donors.
Our community’s needs are constantly changing, and the opportunities for our services are endless. Whether it is helping to promote a greater sense of community within our neighborhoods, cities or even when boundaries don’t exist, we use all of the help we can get. Many times throughout the year we partner with local organizations to champion healthy community causes. If you want to help, or think we can help you, we want to be there every step of the way.
