At the YMCA of Greater Omaha, strengthening community is our cause. We make life-changing impact to the children, adults and families we serve through programs that focus on three key areas: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

The Y provides a variety of programs that support educational achievement, alternatives to teen violence, health/wellness, chronic disease intervention, child care, summer day camp, water safety, refugee assimilation, homework help, special needs integration and family programs.

The Y is open to all people regardless of their ability to pay for programs and services, and as a result we provided over $1.7 million in financial assistance in 2016. By investing in our kids, our health and our neighbors, the YMCA of Greater Omaha ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to thrive-thereby strengthening our community.
