A Message From Our CEO and President


Dear Friends,

The Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA has had a remarkable year of delivering extraordinary
experiences and impacting lives. From advocacy to aquatics, child care to camps, family fun
to fitness, mentoring to multicultural experiences, sports to safe places, and water safety to wellness, everything we do helps strengthen our neighborhoods. In 2017, we continued a 121-year tradition of positively impacting our community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

We know that when we work as one, we move people and our community forward. That’s why the YMCA is committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for young people and their families.

In 2017, the Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA, through our 17 branches, provided membership and program subsidies for 98,352 families and individuals, totaling $2,973,143. We would like to thank you, our donors and volunteers, for joining with us in making this difference in our community. Your time, talent, and resources have enabled us to welcome everyone and empower people to be healthy, confident, and secure.

We are deeply grateful to all who have helped the YMCA and its success. Our partners have worked tirelessly beside us with our amazing staff, consistently exceeding our expectations. This year, with our community partners and 2,864 encouraging volunteers, our Y served 1,463,072 program participants of all ages, faiths, genders, and cultures. We invite you to join us in celebrating our Y Movement and how we are strengthening our community for a better you, for a better country, and for a better us.

Leigh Houghland, President
Danny L. Carroll, Chief Executive Officer
