The Y is a community that’s dedicated to lifting up all New Yorkers, and leaving no one behind on their path to achievement. That’s why every year the Y invests nearly $40 million annually in our community's collective health and well-being including our New Americans Initiative, voting and vaccination efforts, our Community in Action initiative, and counseling services.
