REBUILDING OUR COMMUNITY TOGETHER
2021 Annual Report
Dear Friends of the YMCA of Long Island,
We are proud to present the YMCA of Long Island’s 2021 Annual Report. In 2021, we continued to heal from the devastating impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The resiliency of our members, staff and volunteers in supporting YMCA’s mission to lift and improve the quality of life for Long Islanders was nothing short of remarkable.
As we have for more than 100 years, the YMCA of Long Island has offered programs and services that support health and wellness, youth development, and a center for community life. Over the last year, we are proud of our commitment and resolve to rebuild and adapt to the ever-changing needs of our local communities.
At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, the YMCA of Long Island immediately responded by providing emergency childcare for Essential Workers, telemedicine mental health counseling, virtual wellness, and family engagement programming. This year, we have pivoted to our rebuilding strategy with the return of youth swim lessons and sports programs, summer day camp and the expansion of our UPK programs. Caring for local youth and providing stable, nurturing programs in this time of disruption continues to be tantamount.
Our mission is to make a positive difference every single day. We are grateful for our generous donors, supporters and partners for helping us rebuild one member, one program, one day at a time. We look forward to your continued support as we focus on strengthening our communities for generations to come.
Anne N. Brigis, President & CEO
Paul Craco, Chief Volunteer Officer
