Give For A Better Us

The Y. For A Better Us.


Before Covid-19, families in Connecticut struggled to afford the cost of living, the cost of child care and the cost of enrichment opportunities. Since the global pandemic began affecting all of our communities and the youth, adults and families who live within them, the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA met these challenges head on, and never stopped supporting those we serve.

The CENTRAL CONNECTICUT COAST YMCA stands by our commitment to serve ALL, and the success of our outreach and  impact depends upon the success of our Annual Campaign. The Y is a charitable non-profit organization committed to overcoming barriers of success for ALL.

The Y has been reinvented, and we have reemerged. We have helped to feed the hungry, housed the homeless, held food, diaper and blood drives, cared for the children of emergency workers and altered programs to support virtual learning. The Y has met all of the Covid-19 challenges head on and will continue to serve our communities and their 2021 needs.

More families than ever need financial assistance to take part in Y programs. These programs are committed to build youth of strong character, close the educational achievement gap, improve health outcomes socially, emotionally and physically and to put an end to chronic homelessness.

The CENTRAL CONNECTICUT COAST YMCA provides citizens within twenty-five Connecticut towns and cities with access to the extraordinary, lifesaving and enriching programs and opportunities, and we need your help, now more than ever. All contributions to the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA provide direct financial assistance for ALL who need it.

When you donate to the CENTRAL CONNECTICUT COAST YMCA, you make our communities better and the “us” who live in them stronger. GIVE

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential.  We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development-all  grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.

Healthy Living

We help youth and adults build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.

Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, we bring people together from all  backgrounds, to support those in need. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
