A Report On The Y’s Community Impact

December 31, 2014

Dear Friends,

It is with great pride that I share with you the strong impact made by the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA in 2014! With a special focus on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y served 88,492 kids, families, and adults in twenty five towns and cities including Bridgeport and New Haven.

Character development is at the heart of the Y’s mission, and the values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility were modeled and taught to 32,677 youth in 2014. Through participation in programs including child care, youth sports, summer camping, and Youth in Government, character was built and positive values were reinforced.

Defined as the difference in academic performance between low-income kids and their more privileged peers, the education achievement gap begins early in life for many children. In 2014, the Y made great strides in closing the gap for 1,254 low-income children through the our 8 school-readiness programs, 38 after-school programs, and 10 summer camp programs with a special focus on developing reading and writing skills.

The Y has been teaching kids how to swim and be safe around the water for decades. In 2014, 8,408 children participated in Y swimming lessons and water safety education programs representing an increase of 11% as compared to 2013.

Overweight, obesity, physical inactivity, and poor nutrition affect most in our community. About one in four of our neighbors are pre-diabetic, and many do not realize the serious health consequences of leading an unhealthy lifestyle. In 2014, 47,444 youth and adults participated in health, wellness, education, physical activity, and diabetes prevention programs and services.

Chronic homelessness is a challenge faced by many families and adults, particularly in Bridgeport and New Haven. With a large team of social workers and an inventory of 415 apartments, the Y continues to serve as the largest provider of affordable and supportive housing in the state. In 2014, the Y and our partners reduced chronic homelessness by 18% in Bridgeport and New Haven.

As a source and resource for affordable programs and services, $3.0M in financial assistance was provided to 6,097 financially disadvantaged kids, families, and adults enabling participation in important Y programs or services.

I offer my special thanks to our partners, donors, staff, and the 834 committed volunteers who donated 32,439 hours of their time to help the Y fulfill its mission which is:  

To put Judeo-Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.

With best wishes,

David Stevenson, President & CEO

Youth and Government Program

Youth and Government is a national YMCA group that involves thousands of teenagers worldwide in programs that model their state government.  The New Haven YMCA has been participating in the Youth and Government program since 2006.  Between October and March of each year, the teens in the Youth Center meet once to twice a week to discuss and debate issues in their state and to learn how to draft legislation concerning these issues.

The objective of the program is to teach leadership training, public speaking, critical thinking, community activism, political knowledge, and the development of research, reading and writing skills for academic enhancement.  The youth’s hard work and dedication is rewarded in a weekend conference at the Legislative Office Buildings in Hartford where they present their bills to other YMCA teens across the state.

The course teaches professionalism, patron and facility surveillance, victim recognition, equipment-based rescues, and caring for head, neck and back injuries.
