September 14-23 is welcoming week at the y!

We believe our communities are stronger when everyone feels welcome and we work together for the common good. Welcoming Week celebrates the growing movement of communities that fully embrace new Americans and their contributions to the social fabric of our country. It's a chance for neighbors—both immigrants and U.S.-born residents—to get to know one another and celebrate what unites us as a community!

Welcoming Week is an exciting time for us. That's because, at the Y, we are committed to welcoming all people.
