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.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the YMCA offered emergency child care for essential workers, mental health counseling, virtual and outdoor fitness classes, senior outreach initiatives, summer day camp, community food distribution, enrichment resources for preschool and school-age children, and virtual prevention workshops for young people.
As a result of the pandemic, the YMCA suffered significant financial loss and our road to recovery is long and difficult. We have a commitment to make programs and services available to all Long Islanders, regardless of income level. However, given our financial losses, our community-impact programs have been impacted.
Please help support a Better Y to build a Better Community for a Better Tomorrow because we are Better Together.
Thank you for your support!
The YMCA is a place where everyone is welcome, regardless of race, age, religion or financial standing.
Send A Kid to Camp
With your help, summer can be what it should be; a time to run, have fun, play and learn.
Achievement Gap Programs
The YMCA has several programs aimed at closing the Achievement Gap by focusing on early learning and stemming the summer learning loss.
To build community, create access to the YMCA and close existing gaps in service, the Y of Long Island is expanding.
