Non-Profit of the Year in Central MA in 2015

Wednesday, December 30, 2015

 

Worcester is a city built on tradition and one of those constants since 1864 is the YMCA of Central Massachusetts. But don’t mistake it for an old gym and a peach basket. The super not-for profit now has four branches across the region reaches 57 Central Mass communities.

The real transformation is more than moving from Main Street (the original home was Mechanic's Hall) in Worcester to growth across the region — the real change it is about the holistic approach to serving families' well-being.

Impact 57 Communities, But Personal Touch

The YMCA of Central Massachusetts is providing everything from healthy living programs about nutrition to mental health resources to guidance for Veterans. The agency is everything for family and the individual to be physically and mentally healthy.

Today, the Y also deliver programs at more than 15 sites in other locations and run programs at  two summer day camps out in the country. For Kathryn Zingg Hunter, the President/CEO and her team there is vitually they will not help with or serve as a referral to an organization or partner who can provide the services.

Collaboration

For YMCA of Central Massachusetts their effort is driven through partnerships and collaboration — a team effort with more than 100 associated partners. The result is an estimated 60,000 individuals annually are positively impacted with better health, happier families, and a greater involvement with the community.

The YMCA is everything from teaching your toddler to swim to tapping into a social service network that can assist with the widest range of family issues.

For all of these reasons - the YMCA of Central Massachusetts is the Non-Profit of the Year for 2015.
