As the nation's leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community, we work side by side with corporate partners to improve the quality of life for local employees and their families by creating opportunities to get healthy, give back, and nurture a positive work environment.


Health and well-being boost employee engagement and productivity.


At the Y, we know that's important to the health of an organization and the overall health of our community. That's why we tailor our corporate membership and wellness programs to strengthen the whole person in spirit, mind and body.

From fitness assessments to preventative health education, everything we do focuses on meeting the individual needs of each person and providing a welcoming network of support where everyone has access to the resources and encouragement they need to thrive.
