INVESTING IN OUR COMMUNITY
BERKSHIRE FAMILY YMCA
As a leading nonprofit partner throughout the county, the Y has the track record and on-the-ground prescence to move communities forward, just as we do here in the Berkshires. As a charity, we work every day to address community needs and ensure that all are welcome and that no one is turned away for an inability to pay full price.
There is no other nonprofit like the Y. That's because in hundreds of neighborhoods across the county, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but to deliver, lasting personal and social change.
