Dear Members of the Y Community,
2018 was a year of great change for the YMCA of Central & Northern Westchester!
Following a very thorough evaluation of our options, the YMCA of Central and Northern Westchester had made the decision to list its building on Mamaroneck Avenue in White Plains NY for sale. The YMCA will continue to operate at the location for the entire length of the process (estimated to be at least 18-24 month) and then move to a non-facility YMCA model, which leverages other non-YMCA owned locations to bring existing and new services to our members. Given the unsustainable costs of maintaining this aging building, we felt this was our best option to continue offering our many services to our valued members. Over the last 4 years, we have invested more than $1 million dollars in this aging infrastructure. We believe that these funds would be better spent bringing vital services to our community.
The YMCA is NOT going out of business...quite the opposite! The new, non-facility model for the Y allows us to maintain and reinvest in existing services, and expand and grow our programs to serve additional communities. This model will allow us to broaden our reach to the 66 zip codes we serve. From Mt. Vernon to Pawling, our Y provides important services to families across the region.
We are all focused on extending the impact of the YMCA in pursuit of our mission - to enrich each and every life through a unique, dynamic combination of programs that strengthens spirit, mind and body.
