Dear Friends of the YMCA, We are excited to share out 2013 annual report. The Y is a cause-driven organization which strives to make an impact in our local community. The Y’s three main areas of focus include: Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen through programs such as youth sports, preschool, after-school, and summer camps. The Y’s impact: growing self confidence and self esteem in our children. Healthy Living: The YMCA‘s goals are to improve the nation’s health and wellbeing through programs such as group exercise classes, Parkinson’s classes, physical therapy, wellness seminars, and fun activities for every one from infants to seniors. The Y impact: a healthier community. Rich Mishock Chief Volunteer Officer

John M. Lass President/CEO

Social Responsibility: In 2013, the Y raised funds through its Annual Campaign, Easter House Project and other special events. These activities allowed us to distribute $765,037 in financial assistance to children, families and individuals who otherwise would have been unable to participate at the Y. Nearly $261,286.00 was donated by individuals, businesses and community partners. Additionally the Y attracted over $396,703 in public funding so that programs such as YReads! for children that are falling behind in reading, and SPLASH program, offering drowning prevention and water safety instruction are free to the community. The Y’s impact: giving back to our community and providing support to our neighbors. Our strategic planning process has identified additional areas where the YMCA can make a critical impact on our local community. Initiatives in diabetes prevention, closing the summer learning gap and drowning prevention were kicked off in 2013 and we are already seeing results. Thank you to our more than 5,000 members, nearly 178 volunteers, and more than 306 staff who have all contributed and participated in what was a highly successful year for the YMCA of the Treasure Coast. We have so much more that we hope to accomplish. And we can do it with your continued support. You are an essential part of the YMCA’s mission. We invite you to learn more about our Y, and to share your Y story with a friend. Thank you for making this year an incredible year at the Y.

The Y is the nation’s leading nonprofit committed to strengthening communities in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

OUR Y, OUR IMPACT: OUR MISSION: The YMCA of the Treasure Coast’s mission is to put Christian principals into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. OUR CAUSE: At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone , regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn and grow. BIG PICTURE: YMCA’s have more than 2,600 locations in 10,000 communities across the country. 21 million people of all ages, incomes, backgrounds and abilities come to the Y to learn, grow and thrive. 500,000 volunteers-kids, parents, individuals, businesses and community leaders-are personally vested in our cause. 20,000 full time staff, 64 million households, and 32 million children ages 14 and under live within three miles of a YMCA, while 1,518 YMCA’s serve communities where the median family income is below the U.S. average. FURTHER IMPACT: The YMCA of the Treasure Coast recently identified three additional areas where we can make a critical impact on our community. Initiatives on the following topics have successfully begun and plans for future progress are in place. Drowning Prevention: We know that Florida loses more children under the age of five to drowning than any other state. To help change that, our YMCA has done research, provided educational opportunities to help highlight the problem, sought out partnerships including one with Children’s Services Council of Martin County and joined a task force to continue to push this effort forward. Looking ahead, our goal is to help educate our community on drowning prevention through YMCA swim lessons, in summer camp, in preschool and via partnerships with local schools.

Not only have I found a second family in my fitness group lessons, but my children have made so many friends! The swim program is amazing! Seeing my daughter’s ability and confidence grow in every class makes me so happy I chose the YMCA swim program. I love the Y!

Summer learning gap: The summer learning gap refers to the loss in academic skills and knowledge over the course of summer vacation. With the Y’s popular summer camp programs, this too, is a place where we know we can impact our community. Our Y has identified efforts to weave education into our afterschool and summer camp programs as well as begun to identify partners who might further learning through collaborations with educators. Diabetes prevention: With more than one-third of U.S. adults reported as obese, and the Y being a place dedicated to healthy living, we want to inspire and create change. To get started, we’ve formed a collaboration with Volunteers in Medicine. Jointly, we have collaboratively developed a program for adults to learn the necessary skills to prevent diabetes through diet and exercise. We are exploring a pilot program for youth diabetes prevention for Y summer camp and plan to measure impact. We are seeking additional partners and potential funding sources that can help drive further results with the prevention of diabetes. GET INVOLVED: The YMCA of the Treasure Coast’s goal is to engage more people in the communities we serve whether as a member, volunteer, supporter or advocate. You play a vital role in strengthening our communities! Find out more at
