Community Needs Assessment - Please fill out our survey!

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. The Y has listened and responded to communities’ most critical social needs since its founding, and will continue to do so.

We are working with YMCA of the USA, our national office, to conduct a community needs assessment. Based on this assessment, we will design and deliver new programs and services that address critical issues in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. To design services focused on the community, we must assess the needs of more than our current program participants and facility users. We are hoping you a) will fill out the survey and b) encourage your (local) friends to fill out the survey. 

This link will take you to a short online survey. Survey responses are not individually tracked and are kept confidential by YUSA. The assessment should take no more than five minutes to complete, and the results will be compiled into an executive summary that will be shared with our organization and others partnering with the Y in this effort.  The link will be available through December 15, 2017
