MESSAGE TO OUR COMMUNITIES
A common plan for the future
The last year has been an extremely busy one for the YMCAs of Cambridge & Kitchener-Waterloo. We have been fine-tuning how collaboration works and planning for the future. We are pleased to report that this process is essentially complete and that we can now actively work to the benefit of the communities we serve. Essentially, collaboration means that two independent YMCAs have chosen to work together “as if ” they were one while retaining their status as separate legal entities. For example, our boards meet at the same time and place, but we vote separately on common issues and each board retains full control over policies specific to its Y. Our most significant accomplishment has been to develop a common strategic plan that includes a common mission, vision and values. In order to enjoy the greatest benefit from our new relationship, it was critical that we share a common vision for the future and a plan for getting there. We are confident that we will live in stronger, healthier communities in three years time as a result of our YMCAs’ efforts. We will do so by being innovative and collaborative. We will strategically seek to: • Do more by touching every family in the region. • Focus on expanding programs for seniors and newcomers to Canada. • Develop strategic relationships with other organizations that promote healthy communities. Newcomer Youth Program at Chaplin Family YMCA, Cambridge
• Build organizational capacity that will allow us to achieve our strategic goals. We are already seeing the benefits from collaboration. For example, A.R. Kaufman Family YMCA now offers specialty day camps based on the Cambridge model and the Chaplin Family YMCA has a Newcomer Youth Program based on the model developed in Kitchener-Waterloo. We are proud that we have accomplished all this while continuing to be financially healthy and serving thousands of people in high quality, values-based programs. Over the next few years, our region will have many challenges and opportunities. We are confident that we are well-positioned to meet them and continue building strong kids, strong families and strong communities. Sincerely,
Specialty Day Camp at A.R. Kaufman Family YMCA, Kitchener

The K-W YMCA Endowment Foundation did not enjoy a good year in 2008. Like most organizations, the economy has had a rather major impact on our results.

The market value of our investments as of December 31, 2008 was down $159,600 (9.1%) to $1,512,500. We are pleased that this drop in value was limited to this amount, in view of general market conditions. Largely because of the major fund raising emphasis on the new Stork Family YMCA in Waterloo, the donations that the foundation received were down 82.3% to $27,900. The Heritage Club membership remains at 39 members, each of whom have given or pledged $10,000 or more to the Foundation. Some Heritage Club members support the cost of six life insurance policies with an eventual value of $460,000. For some years, the foundation has been making annual contributions to the Y in the area of $50,000. The Y has advised us that their current financial position would allow them to forgo any contribution from the Foundation for 2008. This will allow us to recover quicker from the results of 2008. As reported at last yearâ€™s Annual Meeting, the Foundation has lent its support to the Stork Family Y with a pledge of $500,000. Your foundation will continue to evolve and grow to play a major role in the building of a healthier community through the YMCA. We urge you to join us as a member of the Heritage Club!

Alex at Hip-Hop Class
Grace in the Kids Zone
Chaplin Family YMCA Alex Thomson-Proctor loves his hip-hop class. He moves with enthusiasm and displays a growing sense of confidence as a performer. He gives his awesome instructor Mason a lot of credit for being so encouraging. At the same time, Alex’s sister Grace is participating in Kids Zone and his older brother Ryen Wilson and mother Maggie Proctor can use the cardio machines in the conditioning centre. It is a typical Wednesday night for the family at the Chaplin Family YMCA. They also enjoy badminton on Tuesdays and Mom gets to work out on Thursdays when the kids are at swimming lessons.
“Having the kids involved in activities at the Y, helps me to get me there,” said Maggie. “I figure that I should get active too instead of just waiting for them, so I do!”
GROWING STRONGER AS A FAMILY. Maggie and Ryen exercising in the conditioning centre
By giving the Proctor family a chance to get active together, Maggie believes that her kids can build healthy habits that can help them throughout their lives. “ I appreciate the role
models they find at the Y and the values-based programming.” But the benefits to the family extend beyond improving their physical health, “Spending this time together, opens up the lines of communication,” said Maggie. “As a result, we’re stronger as
a family.” Spend time at a Family YMCA any evening or weekend and you are sure to see a wide range of families. A similar sense of belonging and finding their family becoming ‘something more’ is a common experience as each family member grows healthier in spirit, mind and body.
MATCHING FAMILIES. SHARING WORLDS AND FRIENDSHIP.
YMCA Host Program The YMCA Host Program has evolved quite a bit since it started in 1985. There is a Mentorship Program for internationally-trained professionals, an older adult program and friendship and tutoring programs for newcomer children and youth in schools. At its core though is what is now called the YMCA Host Friendship Program. This program matches newcomers to Canada with Canadian hosts. The emphasis is to use social situations to help the newcomer to adapt to their lives in Canada while improving their language. Matches are carefully made so that there is a natural fit based upon interests, stage of life and professional background. So since some newcomers arrive as a family or have kids shortly after arriving, the Host Friendship Program matches them up as closely as possible with a Canadian family. Yesid Mejia and Yanin Molina from Columbia expressed the benefits of this program from the newcomers’ perspective,
“We share our customs and traditions and learn about each other. We also learn about Canadian culture and what we should expect living in this new community. Our volunteers always give us advice and it makes our adaptation process easier. They are very supportive.” Their host family also benefits. “Yesid and Yanin are a
delight. Having relationships with people from outside the West opens your eyes to how insulated we are against world events and the resulting quality of life most of the world endures. Our perspective changes and it affects how we live our lives,” said Corena Knechtel. The newcomer family Yesid Mejia, Yanin Molina & Nicolle Mejia get together with their host family Corena, Dane, Nate, Judah, and Asher (not in photo) Knechtel for dinner in Kitchener.
PARTNERI PARENTS FOR CHILD Jackson Perrin shows his mother Kristi what he built with blocks.
ING WITH TO CARE DREN.
YMCA Child Care Placing your young child in someone else’s care is rarely an easy decision—even more so if it’s your first child. You want to be confident that quality care is provided, that the staff are competent and most importantly that your child receives the support, encouragement and opportunities he or she needs to learn and grow as a person. The best case scenario is to find a partner to challenge your child to dream and achieve. Parents tell us that YMCA Child Care is the partner that they seek. The feedback is that our centres are more than just a place to keep a child busy and safe, that they play an important role in building strong kids and strong families. One example is the Perrin family from outside Ayr.
“Since being at YMCA Child Care, Jackson has gained unbelievable independence in numerous areas such as individual play, personal hygiene and crafts,” said his mother Kristi. He has gained great confidence in his abilities to carry out numerous tasks and has great pride in his accomplishments. It is hard for me to describe how he has excelled as a young boy since he has been there.” “The YMCA has done a great job in ensuring that I am aware of what is going on in class, upcoming events the kids are talking about and Jackson’s progress. I highly recommend it. My husband and I can perform our jobs confident that he is in great hands, having fun and expanding his knowledge every day. I look forward one day to sending our baby Charlie there too.”

FOCUSSING ON WELLNESS, NOT ILLNESS.
Life sometimes takes unexpected twists and turns. Everything may seem to be going according to plan—jobs, marriage, kids—and then life takes an unexpected u-turn. Just when you most need things like support, stress relief, activities for your child and achieving good health through active living, they can appear out of reach. That’s where the YMCA steps in and connects people with what they need. By providing them with financial assistance, all families can afford these and other benefits that come from participating in YMCA programs and services. An important source of this assistance comes from the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign. The Grupp/Honeyford family knows first hand how unexpected events can change your life. When Bennett was about six months old, Kim was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and Matt gave up his small business to focus on being a caregiver. Nearly three years later, Kim is adapting to a disability related to her cancer.
“Thanks to generous YMCA Strong Kids donors, we enjoy a family membership at the A.R. Kaufman Family YMCA. The welcoming, energetic environment is key to our well being as a family and as individuals,” said Kim. We look forward to one day supporting the campaign.” The family’s YMCA experience extends beyond the Family YMCA. Bennett attends a YMCA Child Care and a YMCA Day Camp. And Kim spent a decade of summers at YMCA Camp Wabanaki. All gifts to the YMCA Strong Kids Campaign stay in the communities each YMCA serves.

K-W YMCA ENDOWMENT FOUNDATION
BUILDING ON TRADITION. INVESTING IN THE FUTURE. Above: Barb Hill and Andrea Binkle at YMCA Camp Belwood. Debbie Porter, Sandy Westfall and Martha Bean at YMCA Camp Wabanaki on Beausoleil Island
The Kitchener-Waterloo YMCA has been offering quality camping experiences since 1923. In many families, going to Belwood, Ki-Wa-Y or Wabanaki has become a family tradition—a tradition that already extends four generations. The Hill-Westfall Family is an excellent example. Fifteen or more family members have been involved as campers, staff and committee members since Britton Hill asked Margaret Schreiter to serve as Wabanaki’s camp nurse in the 1930s. “We believe strongly in the power of camping,” says Barbara Hill. “Childhood is a special time of life and camping helps build kids into strong, successful adults in a very unique way.” Having experienced and witnessed the power of camping to transform lives firsthand, the Hills and Westfalls have stepped forward to ensure YMCA camps continue to make an impact on young lives, both today and into the future. They have done so through many generous gifts to the K-W YMCA Endowment Foundation’s Camp Fund.
“By investing in the camp fund, we know that the principal remains intact while the interest can be used to ensure the best possible camping experience,” said Dave Westfall, former director of Camp Belwood (1973-75). “I was thrilled when my nephew Jono Hill became assistant director at Belwood and when his sister Katie became the type of role model at Wabanaki that she had looked up to for many years. We hope that our gifts not only allow our tradition to continue, but that it allows many new 2002 family traditions to start and flourish.”
