Annual Support Campaign



You know the challenges that we face in Southeast Texas. People of all ages and backgrounds are struggling to reach their full potential. More and more children face seemingly insurmountable learning gaps. Families find it difficult to spend quality time together. People are not connected to their neighbors and face time happens through a phone. And instead of seeing the income gap shrink, it seems all we do is watch it grow.

But when challenges arise, the Y - and donors like you - steps in.  After 114 years of serving Southeast Texas, the Y understands what our community needs to be its best. Working with generous donors like you, the Y provides everyone the opportunity to be healthy and thrive, to connect with others, and contribute to a better community. Everything the Y does is in service of making us - as individuals and a community - better.

Because we believe everyone has the power to make their lives and community better, we open our doors to all - no matter who they are or where they come from.

Youth Development

All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who care about them and believe in their potential. We see every interaction with children and teens as an opportunity for learning and development - grounded in the Y's core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility.

Healthy Living

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 improve their health and well-being, we build a stronger Southeast Texas every day.

Social Responsibility

With our doors open to all, the Y brings together people from all backgrounds and supports those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our donors, members, volunteers, supporters, and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
