Background
The Valley YMCA, has been serving the Lower Naugatuck Valley towns of Ansonia, Derby, Oxford, Seymour and Shelton since 1866. The Y has had a proud tradition of promoting healthy lifestyles, developing youth, strengthening families, and building communities. In January of 2009 we officially became a branch of the Central Connecticut Coast YMCA. This year, over 13,200 individuals – nearly half of them kids – will come to the Valley Y to learn, grow and thrive. Engaging our Naugatuck Valley communities, the Y is a diverse organization of men, women and children joined together by a shared     commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.  At the Valley Y we offer affordable child care to low- and middle-income families and many other programs that  promote a healthy spirit, mind and body. We count on the generosity of our members and partners to keep our doors open to whoever needs a place to go to help them be more  healthy, confident, connected and secure. Youth Development: Nurturing the potential of every child and teen We believe that all kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve. That’s why, through the Y, youth today are cultivating the values, skills and relationships that lead to positive behaviors, better health and educational achievement. Healthy Living: Improving the nation’s health and well-being The Y is a leading voice on health and well-being. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, youth, adults and families are receiving the support, guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and wellbeing for their spirit, mind and body. Social Responsibility: Giving back and providing support to our neighbors The Y has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical social needs for 147 years. Whether developing skills or emotional well-being through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse demographic populations through global services, or preventing chronic disease and building healthier communities through collaborations with policymakers, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve.
Impact

At the Valley Y, we're for youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Through our programs and services, we strive to instill the four core character development values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility. Our Y branches offer a variety of programs and services, including child care, fitness programs, sports leagues, swimming, summer day and resident camps, and low-income housing with support services. Some of our accomplishments include: having met the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) Early Childhood Program Accreditation. Preschool Child Care programs help youngsters gain self-confidence and social skills while developing positive attitudes about school and learning. Many are from single-parent families with low earning power who have a critical need for child care in order to work.
After School Child Care programs teach positive values through role models, group activities and creative thought. Children enjoy supervised activities such as sports, arts and crafts, music, and drama rather than the company of the TV set or the local street corner. 
Summer Day Camp programs offer 4- to 14-year-old children a unique experience in day camping, while providing a desperately needed child care service for working parents in the summertime. Many single-parent families struggle to keep their jobs and be assured that their children are safe and involved in a culturally stimulating environment during the summer.
SRO Housing initiatives allow the YMCA to provide 30 units of affordable housing to serve men in need of a place to live.

 

Needs
Financial Assistance: At the Valley Y, every child, family or adult
is welcomed. No one is turned away. Communities succeed when everyone is given the opportunity to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. We are committed to providing financial assistance to those who cannot afford the full price of Y programs. The need for financial assistance continues to rise in our community. In 2015 we awarded $185,009 in financial support for camp, school age child care, day care (infant/toddler and pre-school), swimming lessons, housing and membership.
Volunteers:  We have a very dedicated group of volunteers who make up our Board of managers but our numbers are small.  We would like to minimally an additional five volunteers serving on our board of managers.
 
Private Entrance for Residents:  We are proud of our Member In Residence program that provides affordable housing for men in need but in order to get to their rooms, residents can only use the main entrance to the Y.  We would like to create a separate, private entrance just for the residents to make their space feel even more like a home. We are also looking at creating a sitting room by turning one of the resident rooms into an additional space for the residents to read or relax.
 
With a building built in 1924 come many challenges that new buildings do not encounter.  We have many infrastructure neeeds that should be addressed including windows, doors, HVAC, updating electrical and some roofing.
CEO Statement
The Valley YMCA has been serving our Lower Naugatuck Valley for over 151 years providing services to our community.   Much of the Y’s work is supported by membership dues, program fees and grants, but central to our mission is the commitment to make the Y affordable and accessible to all, regardless of ability to pay.

The YMCA reaches an exceptionally diverse group of individuals, providing thousands of deserving families, new immigrants, and at-risk young people with the resources and services they need to lead happy, healthy, and productive lives as citizens of our communities.

The YMCA is known for its quality community programs that provide our neighbors with access to affordable and accessible wellness options. In addition to promoting general health and wellness, YMCA programs teach critical life skills (swimming), promote teamwork and leadership skills (basketball), afford opportunities for intergenerational interaction (Y Family Fun Nights), and provide a safe, nurturing space for area residents.

Our philosophy that no one is turned away due to their inability to pay is something that each and every staff member takes very seriously. We believe that an individual's economic status should not limit their access to a variety of activities. This driving philosophy makes YMCA programs even more critical to the general health and well-being of our community.

Board Chair Statement  The Valley YMCA has had a long standing tradition in the Lower Naugatuck Valley and serves more people, in more ways, and in more communities than any other single non-profit organization. With over 14,000 members and program participants in a 5-town area, the Y provides value-based services to thousands of families annually. Y donors have many giving options. They may support a specific Y program that has benefited their family, or leave their gift unrestricted so the Y can strengthen the lives of families in their neighborhood. Donors can contribute to the physical and financial growth and stability of the organization with a capital campaign gift, or by making an annual cash gift. Forward-thinking donors join the Heritage Society, knowing their planned giving will secure our ability to grow and plan into the future. Donors who give to the Annual Strong Kids Campaign know that every dollar they invest is used to expand Y programs to those in greatest need. Whatever their manner of giving, our donors understand that a gift to the Valley YMCA is an investment in this community’s most important assets—its children and families.

Programs
Description

Children who attend our camp develop skills and values that last a lifetime while making new friends and great memories. It is a place where kids get to be kids; get unplugged from their TV’s, computers and cell phones and make connections with old friends and new. And it’s more than just a week or two in a child’s life, because while they’re having fun, they’re growing – spiritually, emotionally and developmentally. Summer day camp offer children a unique experience, while providing a desperately needed child care service for working parents. Many single-parent families struggle to keep their jobs and be assured that their children are safe and involved in a culturally stimulating environment.  Knowing that their children are safe, making friends and having fun, makes going to work that much easier for working families. Last year, more than 75 children ages 5 to 15 took advantage of the Valley YMCA’s exciting and fun-filled summer day camps; most attending all eight weeks.

Program Success Monitored ByHelpOrganizations describe the tools used to measure or track program impact.

In our camp and youth sports programs every child is given opportunities to grow socially and emotionally with their peers in a safe and friendly environment.  We follow up with campers and parents regarding their camp experience using YMCA of the USA camper survey tools. These tools evaluate the overall camp experience and measure the camp’s impact in the areas most associated with key developmental assets. We also track how many children are awarded financial assistance in all programs to assess community need.

Examples of Program SuccessHelpOrganization's site specific examples of changes in clients' behaviors or testimonies of client's changes to demonstrate program success.
We know our program is a success when kids don't want camp
to end and can't wait to be a counselor themselves one day. When a child is given a chance to challenge themselves to try something new, they learn self-confidence and the value of hard work. By surrounding them with positive role models, they learn the value of caring for others and the world around them. These goals are always a main focus of the work we do.  As one parent wrote: "Camp is already finished for the summer!!!  Where does time go?  I especially want to thanks you for all the care and support given not only to my sone but me also.  My heart is filled with gratitude on that note!  I look forward to next summer when my son can become a CIT.  Thank you so much!!"
 
Description

Children and teens make up more than 50% of the people we serve and the Valley Y’s commitment to children is seen through our programs that give children a strong foundation so they can withstand daily pressures and grow into honest, responsible and caring citizens of the global community.  We reach out to help families who need a safe, caring and nurturing environment by providing safe, structured programs so parents can go to work without worrying.  In 2014, our Y provided child care to more than 80 children weekly at our child care center and more than 263 children, from kindergarten through 7th grade, attended one of the YMCA’s three before and/or after school childcare sites (Prendergast and Mead in Ansonia, Bradley School in Derby and Sunnyside in Shelton).

Our school age child care program is on the same calendar as the school system and many of our after school children also attend summer camp.  It is a measure of success for us that we do have that carry-over and retention of program participants.  
We are always happy to hear from the parents of our participants and know we are doing our job well when we get notes like the following:
"I am glad we spoke yesterday.  I am very thankful to the YMCA for taking very good care of Quentin.  He enjoys all of you and what the program offers.  Keep up the great work and thank you always!"
Description

Children grow strong in spirit, mind and body in our youth sports programs and swimming lessons.  We promote a non-competitive environment in which everybody plays and everybody wins.  To us, good sportsmanship, self-confidence and teamwork are more important than winning or losing.  More than 1,100 children took advantage of the Y’s instructional swimming lessons. Participation in a team sport not only offers exercise benefits, but helps kids develop healthy habits that continue throughout their lives.  The psychological benefits of developing self-esteem, camaraderie and problem-solving skills in a team setting are just a few of the additional bonuses kids receive through team sports.  These groups and activities offer the chance to make new friends, develop new skills and have fun.  Last year, 81 youth ages 5 - 18 participated on our Sprinters Swim Team.

Matthew has been in the Y pool for as long as he can remember.  As a baby, he loved going to the Y pool just to play but after watching Michael Phelps in the 2008 Summer Olympics, he told his parents he wanted to be a swimmer. In 2008 he started swimming lessons and by the following summer, he was able to join the Valley Y Sprinters Swim Team with Coach Kelly and Coach Patrick.  Matthew worked hard, rarely missing practice, and quickly started qualifying for meets, including the Tri-State Regional Children’s Specialized Swim Meet.  Once there, he classified for the National Junior Disability Championships held in Chicago, Illinois and went on to place first in all seven of his events!  In 2010 he went to Regionals and for the National Junior Disability Championships in Michigan. One might think that Matthew swims for the ribbons and recognition, but his motivation is different. “I like to swim because it’s a water activity, it’s a lot of fun, and it helps you get stronger,” he said. 

Description

Improving healthy living for people is a priority for the Y.  We help children and adults understand and value their health and we nurture their well-being.  We offer resources and guidance to maintain or improve physical activity and overall health and wellness.  The Y also brings families closer together, encourages wise choices and fosters connections among members through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests.  Youth, adults and families are receiving the support they need to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body. Some of the benefits of our Y’s programs are obvious, like learning to swim.  But just as important are the not-so-obvious life skills that are learned at the same time: self-confidence, teamwork and the chance to create meaningful personal change. The Y offers membership and fitness opportunities for infants to active older adults. Our facility includes a Pool, Wellness Center, Gymnasium, and two Racquetball Courts.

The Valley YMCA bases much of its success on participation. We know that there is a far greater need in the community than we can hope to alleviate but we look very hard at and measure our success by: 1) increasing the number of overall participants; 2) increasing the amount of financial assistance (FA) awarded; and 3) increasing the number of participants who receive FA.

When people feel connected and welcome, they will continue to come back to a program. At the Valley Y, we believe that a healthy life is achieved by actively striving for sprititual, mental and physical well-being.  Our success will be seen in the reduction of  youth and adult obesity and reduction of the onset of Type II diabetes.

If the walls of Ys could talk, they would have plenty of positive, life-changing stories to tell – and one of them would be about Alex Smith and his father, Bob.  Some people might say that Bob’s stroke is what changed the lives of the Smith family.  But the Y members of more than four years say it is the motivation and caring they found at the Y afterwards that changed their lives.

          

Recovering from a stroke made life challenging, but Alex and Bob found friends and an extended family at the Hamden/North Haven Y.  They come to the Y almost every day for fitness and fellowship because it is their home away from home - the place where they can stay healthy in spirit, mind and body.    “What makes the Y special is the people,” says Alex.  “They make it fun to come here; they’re truly glad to see you and they make us feel like we’re part of the family.  I can’t say enough about what the Y means to me and my dad.  Just keep on doing what you’re doing because we love you!”

Description
The Valley YMCA is extremely proud of our commitment to helping individuals move from homelessness to hopefulness.  We are more than just a place to sleep. We provide a sense of community, hope and a safe place to belong to a growing population of homeless men. While many of our residents may not have any other support networks, last year 26 men benefitted from our Members in residence program.
Membership For All is an income based membership, individuals pay what they can afford to pay. With a mission centered on balance, the Y brings families closer together, encourages good health and fosters connections through fitness, sports, fun and shared interests. As a result, nearly 2,000 youth, adults and families are receiving the support (We gave out $208,309 in Membership and Program financial assistance in 2014), guidance and resources needed to achieve greater health and wellbeing for their spirit, mind and body at the Valley Y.

The Valley Y Members in Residence program’s objective is to provide safe, clean, affordable housing to those who need it, many of them desperately. Many of our residents would either need the services of a shelter, or would be homeless without our program. We currently have 29 rooms which are usually occupied year round.  The profile of our Members in Residence members includes individuals that have dealt with homelessness, divorce, substance abuse, mental health and medical problems. They generally have no medical insurance, are low income, undereducated, unemployed, and some may have previously been incarcerated. These individuals would be homeless without the Y.

Program Comments
CEO Comments

Our Y's recently adopted Real-Time Strategic Plan (RTSP) will serve as our road map to success for years to come.  With bold, lofty goals, our next challenge is to operationalize the plan and determine how we are measuring success.


Conducting business in a building that was constructed in 1924 brings a unique set of challenges to our Y. There are always more projects than funds available so we will continue to prioritize the needs of our building with the needs of our members and residents, tackling one project at a time.
 
While we do have these challenges in front of us we also have so much opportunity at the Valley Y!  I am very excited to be a part of a wonderful, connected community both in the Valley and in the Y.  My staff and I are committed to providing the best experience possible to our members and participants and are constantly looking at things we can do to improve.  We are creating a lot of great, positive energy and know that we are on the verge of really tremendous growth in youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Foundation Staff Comments
Up until 2007, the Valley YMCA was a separate organization that would submit 990s representing their own financials.  The 2007 990 that appears in this profile is only for the Valley YMCA.  In 2008, they officially became part of the Connecticut Central Coast YMCA.  The 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 990s in this profile represent the financials of the Connecticut Central Coast YMCA.  The top 3 institutional funders for fiscal year 2013 are for the Valley YMCA only.

Ensure Health & Wellness

A healthy community is a rich community. When we enjoy good health, when we engage in wellness activities – and when we support people living with disease or disabilities -- there are profound physical and psychological benefits. Simply put, we are all stronger and happier. To support the health and wellness initiatives in your community is to put good health within reach of all.

Nurture Children & Youth

When families, schools and communities take the view that children and youth are valued and respected assets to society, they necessarily support environments that nurture youth development. Children raised to embrace positive social values, to seek self-understanding, and to value their self-worth grow to become community-minded young adults with a sense of belonging and a belief in their resiliency. See how you can help our community's children grow into tomorrow's leaders.

Meet Basic Needs

A strong community not only meets its members’ basic needs but also works to create long-term solutions to their problems. Provide people with affordable housing, enough to eat and access to affordable health care and you enable them to envision a better future for themselves.
