2016 was another terrific year for the YMCA of Superior California with continued growth, increased community engagement, and financial stability. Our Y’s commitment to strengthening community is demonstrated through the creative partnerships, and innovative programming that was provided to more than 30,000 people of all ages.
In addition to many traditional YMCA programs such as youth sports, summer day camp, after-school care, swim lessons and group exercise, we have innovative programs aimed at closing the summertime achievement gap for at-risk kids; water safety, and lifeguard training for youth at the Sacramento County Youth Detention Facility; dual immersion childcare site at the Language Academy of Sacramento, and summer day camp and resident camp programs for foster kids and homeless youth.
Thanks to the charitable support of individuals, businesses, and organizations alike, more than 1,300 children received assistance through the Y-Assist Fund that provided more than $424,000 in program scholarships in 2016. One hundred percent of every dollar donated stays local and is invested directly back into the lives of kids, families, and individuals in our community.
We offer our heartfelt appreciation to all the dedicated volunteers, donors, staff and organizations who have helped and supported the Y - furthering our mission and impact, and look forward to your continued involvement.
