YMCA Community Needs Assessment

At the Y, strengthening community is our cause.  We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.  The Y has listened and responded to communities’ most critical social needs since its founding, and will continue to do so.

The YMCA of the Northwoods is working with YMCA of the USA, our national office, to conduct a community needs assessment. Based on this assessment, we will design and deliver new programs and services that address critical issues in the areas of youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.  To design services focused on the community, we must assess the needs of more than our current program participants and facility users. We are seeking the participation of all of those in our community to share their voice and feedback to help strengthen our communities. 

Responses to our online survey are not individually tracked and are kept confidential. The assessment should take approximately five minutes to complete, and the results will be compiled, shared, and utilized to continue our path toward greater impact.

We would like to thank you for your commitment to the Northwoods and we look forward to partnering in youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.


Thank you,
