At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. We know when we work together, we move more individuals, families and communities forward. Every day, Y staff, volunteers, members, friends and community partners work side-by-side to tackle the important issues impacting the Pittsfield area.
What if more people joined our cause? Imagine what the Pittsfield area would be like if…
- More kids had a safe place to go to learn, laugh and play
- More people had the guidance and tools to lead healthier, more balanced lives
- More of our neighbors could access the support needed to create a better future for themselves
Together, we can make this a reality for the Pittsfield area. Our community faces challenges, but we see possibilities rather than obstacles because of committed Y friends and generous donors like you.
Every gift makes a difference.
Everyone has a role to play.
Together, we can do so much more.
TOGETHER WE CAN DO SO MUCH MORE
We’re more than a place, we’re a cause. Every day, the Pittsfield Family YMCA strengthens the Pittsfield area through programs and services focused on:
All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of caring adults who believe in their potential. We see every interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning and development—all grounded in the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility.
Health and well-being are all about balance. That’s why we help people and families build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their everyday lives. By helping kids, adults, families and seniors from all walks of life to improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger community.
With our doors open to all, we bring together people from all backgrounds, and support those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back.
SO MUCH MORE IS POSSIBLE
WITH YOUR SUPPORT
When Luke was a child, his parents went through a difficult divorce. As a result, he wasn’t able to spend as much time with his father alone, and he and his sister relied on the Pittsfield Family YMCA’s supervised visitation services to do so. Luke, his sister and father were able to do fun activities together at the Y such as swim and play basketball. By the time Luke was 7 or 8 years old, his father’s health declined and he wasn’t able to continue to see him through the Y’s program. When Luke was 13 years old, his father passed away. “If it wasn’t for the YMCA, I don’t think I would have had the opportunity to make memories that have lasted forever with my dad. The YMCA was the last place I saw my father.”
