COMMUNITY-BASED PROGRAMS

The Greater Grand Rapids community is comprised of hard working, passionate individuals and families who share common desires – improved health, access to transportation, sound resources, employment, green spaces, food justice, great schools, and equity.

The Y listens to the voice of our community’s most vulnerable stakeholders, and then develops programs that meet true need. We assess, educate, inspire, invigorate, and develop lifelong friendships with those who participate in our community-based programs.

As a bridge builder, the Y works hand in hand with community partners to raise up the irrepressible human spirit. We are grateful for the generous support of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and Michigan Department of Community Health who help to make many of our community based programs possible.
