POWER OF PURPOSE

Dear Y Supporter,

Our biggest joy in sharing our Annual Impact Report is being able to look back at all that was accomplished in the last year. It gives me a huge sense of pride to see what our staff, volunteers and supporters have enabled our Y to accomplish. That is why I want to start with simply saying, THANK YOU. Thank you for making our work possible. This year, amongst other things, our Y was open for service to our community more than 350 days, employing 225 staff, with over 1,600 volunteer hours, and awarded more than $410,000 in total scholarships! This was our first year of work in our new Strategic Plan, giving us a compass to guide our work in an even more intentional way.

Continuing on OUR COMMUNITY PROMISE…

To utilize the power of the Y to boldly shape our community to a healthy future and create a community we all want to live in. At the Y, we know this sounds like a heavy feat but we know Grays Harbor needs our Y and we know we are the organization like no other.

A community in need…

In Grays Harbor, more than 11% of adults have diabetes, 1 in 3 adults live with arthritis, 33% have limited access to exercise opportunities, and 24% of youth lack reliable access to sufficient quantity of affordable nutritious food. At the Y we are working to change that… 99% of our members say that our Y is an important resource for Healthy Living. Our work goes beyond just youth. In 2023, our Y served over 1,241 seniors and 263 families. Intentionally improving health outcomes in Grays Harbor.

A Strategic Approach…

Our goal is to utilize partnerships and collaborations to expand our cause in preventive and upstream physical and mental health. Last year, we expanded our work in Chronic Disease Prevention by serving 116 adults in Evidence Based Programming through Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring and Enhanced Fitness. In 2024 we will be adding Tai Chi and have expanded our insurance membership contracts to 4 payment options, helping alleviate the barrier of payment for our adult members.

Partnerships help us expand beyond our walls. In 2023, through local partnerships, we served meals and snacks throughout Grays Harbor, expanding our reach to Ocean Shores, Elma, Aberdeen and Hoquiam totaling 45,247 snacks and 43,739 meals. Additionally, our school district swim program is now set to have it’s most impactful year by teaching 2,000 youth life saving water safety skills from as far as North Beach to Elma. This is a partnership like no other Y or county!

A membership means more at the Y. We have expanded our services to include more, from fitness challenges on our Y app to virtual programming available from your home to expanded pickleball hours and much more! In 2023 we saw over 224,203 facility visits and 6,466 members with our FOR ALL program skyrocketing to nearly 32% of our membership on scholarship totaling $254,727 in membership scholarships.

The impact of our staff and volunteers…

At the Y, we showed up for Grays Harbor. In 2023 33 kids were prepared for kindergarten, 1,876 kids learned the lifelong skill of swimming, 721 kids had a supportive mentor afterschool, 892 kids received homework help, 860 kids found a healthy path in youth sports, 45,247 snacks and 43,739 meals were served and 486 kids discovered Camp Bishop. Our scholarship assistance grew from 22.9% to 31.7% of members. We were pleased to award $254,727 in membership scholarships, $36,231 in camp scholarships, $38,213 in program scholarships and $75,793 to school districts for school swim lessons. Additionally, FREE mission-based programs such as Park and Play, our meal service program, Harbor After School Mentoring and so much more!

Thanks to you, our supporters, our Y continues to be here for you. On behalf of the YMCA of Grays Harbor Board of Directors and staff, we would like to say thank you for staying with the Y and believing in our work. As promised, our Strategic Plan has guided us by elevating our commitment to serve in a more significant way then ever before. As we move forward, we will continue to be a champion to some of the most pressing needs within our communities.

This Impact Report shares our accomplishments of the past year. We hope you’ll enjoy reading more about how our Y continues to impact our community.

Sincerely,

For a better Grays Harbor.

Response

MISSION IN ACTION

THE Y’S REPONSE

The Y’s commitment to Grays Harbor is developing new generations of changemakers who will better our community and make it a place we all want to live. We mold young people who will grow into thriving adults and transform our community by influencing system change, bridging social divide and giving back.

At the Y, we believe in the unlimited potential of young people to use their ideas, passion and voice for the greater good.

We are committed to empower youth, from childhood to young adulthood, with the support they need to become changemakers who create a better future for all

This support is critical for economic development, without the Y, the youth in our community would lack access to the basic resources and opportunities they need to thrive, such as quality health services, education, employment and opportunities to grow.

The Y is here to fill the gaps and help youth develop into the next generation of leaders who will transform our community for the better.

Youth in Y programs demonstrate improvement in academic proficiency as they journey from birth to career.

We foster a culture grounded in the Y’s shared values and beliefs and we are committed to inspiring and developing staff.

The Y invests in the youth today to empower the leaders of tomorrow.

We create safe spaces for children to be successful so that parents can go to work knowing their kids are taken care of. We provide snacks and meals to reduce the burden on already taxed working families. The Y employs over 225 people in our community with the Y being the first job for many.

In 2022 the Y opened a new learning center doubling capacity of childcare to more than 150 slots.

The Y is committed to Early Learning Readiness to ensure kids are ready to learn when entering kindergarten.

FIND YOUR Y. FIND YOUR GROWTH.

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT

At the Y we believe all kids have great potential and deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.

We recognize that effective youth development requires a holistic approach focused on achieving certain social-emotional, cognitive and physical milestones.

Youth need positive role models, and they need to feel physically and emotionally safe to thrive. To ensure youth realize their potential to become active, engaged and thriving members of society, the Y nurtures their development from birth to career through programming, experiences and supports.

CANOE HOUSE

RESTORING HISTORY

Building community is our cause and being a catalyst for partnership is at the forefront of our strategic plan.

The past 8 years the Y has collaborated and partnered with the Aberdeen Museum, Grays Harbor College Carpentry Program, Adam Pratt, Will Foster, Grays Harbor Community Foundation, and various volunteers and donors to build a new Canoe House at Camp Bishop.

The story begins with Westport’s Vern Heikkila, once a Camp Bishop camper, who fondly remembers paddling a classic Old Town canoe while at camp.

Over time, the 25-foot canvas on wood vessel fell into disrepair and ended up behind the Aberdeen History Museum in hopes that it one day might become a gallery piece.

Vern spent two years restoring the canoe to its former glory.

Once repaired, he began hauling it back and forth to Camp Bishop each summer, his heart set on sharing his love for canoeing, and his love of this canoe, with another generation of campers

In time, Vern decided the canoe needed a permanent home at Camp Bishop and the YMCA of Grays Harbor agreed. After thoughtful conversation, a design was commissioned and local architect Will Foster came up with something imaginative, a canoe-inspired building: curved and sleek with a heavy timber frame to represent the Harbor’s heritage of wooden boat construction, the timber industry and the canoes of the local Quinault Indian Nation.

In partnership with many, the new Canoe House was built to house a 25-foot restored Old Town Canoe that was used in the water safety program funded by the American Red Cross in 1946, and programming in the 1970s for youth at the Y.

Countless hours of planning and volunteering went into the partnership to build the beautiful canoe house that overlooks Lost Lake.

CATALYST FOR CHANGE

Partnerships

At the Y, building community is our cause. We find that this is most effectively done through partnerships and collaborations that enable us to broaden our reach in the community and serve it in new and unique ways.

The YMCA has been blessed to be a part of great partnerships and collaborations. We are thankful we have been given the opportunity to serve the youth and families of our community and are looking forward to see what else the future brings.
