The Greater Waterbury YMCA is a United Way Agency. For United Way 211 info click here.



The Annual Support Campaign helps the Y support children, families, adults and seniors in all of our programs. Maritza, a single parent and a long-time member of the Y and recipient of financial assistance through Open Doors, uses ChildWatch daily for her daughter, Isabella. “ChildWatch gives Isabella the chance to socialize with other children, and learn how to be caring, while I get a great workout. She’s excited to come to school here in August! Without Open Doors, none of this would be possible.”
