HELP US HIT ONE OUT OF THE PARK.
A big THANK YOU to all who helped us reach our public phase goal of $50,000. We surpassed it, raising $51,480.25!!! This first phase has given us a jump start to reach our year goal of $120,000. Let's keep the momentum going so we can help local families stay healthy and strengthen our community.
The challenges that face our community, the Adirondack Region, are both unique and widespread. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together. But when challenges arise, the Y—with donors like you—steps in to make our community better. Every dollar you give to the Y’s Annual Campaign can change the life of a child, teen or a family in need. No one is ever turned away. Your kindness can offer the chance of a lifetime to the people who need it most. To learn more, click here.
The year goal of the Annual Campaign is to raise $120,000 by May 5, 2019.

The YMCA Adirondack Center is a YEAR-ROUND multi-generational program center. Program and services will be offered for all ages but our focus is to clear away barriers for youth to be successful, to eliminate generational poverty and to serve the unmet needs of all ages. Partnerships with service related organizations will be pivotal to further serve the needs of the Adirondack communities.
THE HISTORY OF THE CENTER
In June, 2016 the Himoff Family donated a building in Brant Lake, which was formerly Suzie Q’s Restaurant, to the YMCA to serve the local community as well as the Adirondacks regionally. The renamed YMCA Adirondack Center is a year-round multigenerational facility. The goal of the Center is to partner with other service related organizations to increase capacity and serve the unmet needs of all ages.
A summer literacy program (known as No More Learning Gap) for children entering 1st and 2nd grades was launched in the summer of 2016. NMLG focuses on preventing the regression of reading skills during the summer by providing academics, camp activities and a field trip each week. This was made possible through the generosity of the Himoff and Powers Families. The Y-Achievers program launched in September, 2016 and was supported by a significant lead gift from Stewart’s Shops and the Dake Family. Its focus is to support middle school students during and after school hours in the areas of academics, character and career development, and enrichment activities.
Other programs such as parent/child play gatherings, movie nights and Senior Lunch & Learns are offered to members of the community. These activities provide opportunities to engage in healthy living and socialization in a group setting.
