SAFE SPACES


One in three kids in America lives in poverty, and nearly 40% of kids surveyed in 2013 and 2014 were exposed to violence or abuse over the previous year. All kids deserve a safe, positive environment that helps them develop socially and emotionally. Through a range of programs, like ESYAC, the Y helps kids each year stay safe, have fun, and grow.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE

STRONG KIDS, STRONG COMMUNITIES. 

It Takes a Village to build Strong Kids and Strong Communities. Lasting personal and social change can only come about when we work together toward common goals. The Shasta Family YMCA connects and supports people of all ages and backgrounds through strategic programs that are helping our community reach its full potential. 

Our major fundraising push is the Annual Campaign for Strong Kids and Strong Communities, which runs for a few months each spring and enables us to subsidize memberships and program fees for low-income families as well as offer programs that target specific issues in our community. In 2018, the Y provided nearly half a million dollars in asset-rich programming for the greater Redding community. Read more below!

A gift to the Y supports healthy families and a stronger community!
