The YMCA of San Diego County is dedicated to improving the quality of human life and to helping all people realize their fullest potential as children of God through the development of the spirit, mind, and body. Character development is an important part of the YMCA Mission and through all its programs the YMCA works at teaching young people to accept and demonstrate the four core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility in their daily lives. We accomplish our Mission through programs that will strengthen and enrich their family life, build self-esteem and nurture personal growth, appreciate the world around us (through environment awareness, conservation, and education), develop leadership and strengthen communities, and encourage healthy lifestyles. Our vision to serve more families, in more communities, in an equal way.
The Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected, and secure children, adults, families, and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child, and when a community comes together for the common good. In 2011, the YMCA of San Diego County touched nearly one in ten people in San Diego County, by responding to community needs and delivering critical, life changing programs to a diverse population. Over 339,000 youth and adults benefited from a Y program or service last year. Each year $9 million is provided in program support and financial assistance to disadvantaged children and families, funded through an Annual Support Campaign, branch special events, and other community funding. It is the Yís first priority to ensure that no child is turned away due to the inability to pay. Y donors can feel confident their contribution is making a meaningful and lasting impact. Charity Navigator gives our Y a Four Star Rating (exceeds industry standards), we are debt free, and 93 cents of every dollar goes directly to programming (with only 7 cents to administration including fundraising and salaries). It is the goal of the San Diego Y to continue to serve the underserved and to build new facilities in neighborhoods where services are needed the most. In the past five years, 3 new Y facilities have been built and eight others remodeled or expanded. In 2011, the Border View Family YMCA opened a new 32,000 foot facility bringing new programs and opportunities to an underserved community Ė and an estimated 20,000 border community youth. The Copley Family YMCA is about to undergo a HUGE transformation. Thanks to the Price Family and Price Charities, a new YMCA is in the planning stages for the corner of El Cajon Blvd. and Fairmount Avenue. This new facility will also have a brand new aquatic center. But our most prized accomplishments canít be measured. They come in the form of high fives after a batterís very first home run and a faint smile of a young reader. It comes from knowing that children have participated in lifesaving swim lessons, have a safe place to go after school, and an opportunity to succeed in life.
