The Why Behind The Y.

Every day, the Ozarks Regional YMCA gives our community the support it needs to learn, grow and thrive. From advocacy to food security, disease prevention to athletics, football to dance classes, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhoods and the people who live here.

Every day, our community faces new challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. Your gift can help the Ozarks and everyone in it shine.

Thousands of kids and adults in your community will have their lives changes thanks to programs you support through your gift to the YMCA's Impact Campaign.

But keeping the Ozarks great is a full-time job.

Thank You For Joining Us In Our Mission To Be HERE FOR ALL!


Provides a single parent with one year of after school care, allowing them to work to support their family. Out of School time is a risky time for kids as they are most vulnerable to negative influences. The Y makes safe, fun and enriching activities available for our children during times it is most needed.



Supports the Y's water safety programs for ten children. With drowning being one of the leading causes of accidental death among children, the Y is addressing this issue. Alongside our swim lessons, the Y's "Safety Around Water" initiative makes underserved children safer in our pools, lakes and rivers.


Provides one low income child with a fun filled week at YMCA Camp Wakonda. At YMCA Camp Wakonda, kids unplug from screens and connect with each other and to nature. They swim, hike, climb and play outdoors - together. They return home healthier and motivated to continue active lifestyles outdoors.



Helps a child learn good sportsmanship and team skills through youth sports. In addition to developing sports skills, at the Y we teach the value of teamwork and sportsmanship in a fun, safe and enriching environment for all our kids.
