Here For Good

Serving Montana Today, Building for Tomorrow.

Wendy & Natalie

When Wendy first came to the Y for child care, she was looking for a very specific kind of care for her two-year-old granddaughter, Natalie. Natalie had special needs.

Alberta & Aurora

When Alberta and her partner, Jadrian, moved to Missoula five years ago, they quickly realized they needed child care for Aurora.  That's where the Y stepped in.

The Schermerhorns

Michelle and JJ came to the Y over 10 years ago in search of a safe and welcoming place for their son, Michael, who had just been diagnosed with cancer.

Our Goal

We are leading a county-wide effort to raise funds to remodel the Russell Street campus and make vital improvements that will allow us to double our child care capacity, continue to support Missoula’s growing workforce, create diverse and safe spaces that meet the needs of our community’s families, and so much more. We ask you to please consider joining us in making a generous, impactful contribution to help the Y stay Here for Good.

The Peacocks

While Donovan lives with developmental disabilities that can limit his options for out-of-school activities, he’s been able to grow and thrive with the Y through swimming & summer camp.

Doris

Doris has been a loyal member for quite some time, dating back to 1979 when she first joined the local YMCA in Honesdale, PA.  She may be 90 years old, but she "feels about 35" because of the Y.

The Johnsons

Just over four years ago, a young mother found herself suddenly single, left behind with an empty bank account, a chronic heart condition, and three children.

Since 1967...

The Missoula Family YMCA has worked to build a healthier western Montana for all. The Y helps over 15,000 Montanans of all ages, backgrounds and abilities achieve their individual health goals and brings families closer together each year. In addition to health and wellness offerings, we’re proud to be Montana’s largest licensed child care provider and to offer nearly $700,000 in financial assistance and community subsidies each year so no one is excluded from Y programs based on their income.

The Missoula Y is the community center for all and we are Here for Good. Now it's time to re-envision our Russell Street campus to better meet the demands of our growing community. To continue and expand the Y’s work, we are leading a community-wide effort to raise funds to make vital campus improvements that will allow us to double our child care capacity, continue to support Missoula’s growing workforce, create innovative community spaces that meet the needs of our families and seniors, and so much more.
