The YMCA has been a part of the Greater New Orleans area since 1852. Today, we reach more than 13,000 lives through branches in over 7 parishes. We live our not-for-profit, charitable mission daily by providing life-changing programs and services that enrich people from all walks of life.
You may have noticed that the Y is changing the way we present ourselves. For the first time in 43 years, we are unveiling a new brand strategy. This change comes at a critical time, because it is designed to increase understanding of the impact the Y is making in the community. At the Y, we've always known that positive change only comes about when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. And that's why we're here. We have three areas of focus: Youth Development; Healthy Living; Social Responsibility. So while we're changing our appearance to better reflect the work we do , we're still supporting this community in the same way we always have. We look forward to enriching more lives and more families, and to further strengthening this community for decades to come.
