HELPING YOU LEARN, GROW, & THRIVE

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, we ensure that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow, and thrive. Anchored in this community since 1914, we have a long-standing relationship and physical presence, not just to promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.

We desire to keep our community members safe. We offer programs that will help you provide assistance in times of crisis to those in need until the medical professional arrives.  When you are trained in these areas, it gives the injured person the best opportunity for a positive outcome – and gives you the opportunity to change someone’s life for the better!

Darkness to Light:
Darkness to Light “Stewards of Children®” uses real people and real stories to show you how to protect children. The framework of the training is built off the foundation of The 5 Steps to Protecting Children™. You’ll meet survivors who lived through child sexual abuse, experienced its immediate and long-term effects, and ultimately were able to find healing. You’ll meet experts who work with children and families, and confront abuse on a daily basis. Many of these survivors and experts are also parents themselves. The YMCA’s Authorized Facilitator can provide this training for you and/or your organization at the YMCA or on site at your location. For more information, contact Heather Murphy.
