COMMITTED TO OUR COMMUNITY
As a nonprofit human services organization, The Y is dedicated to building healthy, confident and connected children, adults, families, and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, a mentor inspires a child, and a community comes together to make a difference.
Spectrum Swim Lessons
Thanks to the Buddy Matthews Memorial Fund, the Sewickley Valley YMCA, offers free swim lessons for children with Autism. Held in our indoor Warm Water Pool classes are held during off-peak times of the day to help minimize distractions and provide the best environment for learning.
"Over the course of two years, Ben developed swimming skills without thinking that he was because he was having so much fun," said Nicole.
At the Y, a supportive community is a big part of wellness. At every age and every level of activity, you’ll find people just like you looking to live a little bit healthier. Members and program participants often say the support and enthusiasm of fellow participants and staff as some of the key factors in their achievement of greater well-being.
One member sums up the Get Lean in 2016 this way:"My experience during Get Lean was scary, fun and fantastic," said Sue.
Faith in Action
Faith in Action provides the elderly with drivers to help them remain independent and a vital part of their community by providing rides to doctor appointments and medical treatments, the grocery store and access to conduct their personal affairs. Volunteers feel good about helping people right in their neighborhood.
