Providing Support to our neighbors.
Since the Y was founded over 160 years ago, we haver served as a local safe haven to many in need. Today, the Y is a cause-driven organization that provides affordable services and programs to meet the unique needs of each community. Whether developing skills through education and training, welcoming and connecting diverse populations through global services or preventing chronic diseases and building healthier communities; the Y fosters the care and respect all people deserve.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we use our tax-exempt status to help support children, families, and communities across Oklahoma. Our goal is to continue to enhance the Y's partnerships by delivering quality, vital programs and essential services to the community; especially those who are under-served. We are able to provide these services due to the stewardship and philanthropic support from private and public donors.
