Community Outreach

The Y is a cause for strengthening the community, working tirelessly to nurture the potential of kids, improve the nation's health and well-being and give back and support our neighbors.

When you advocate with the Y, you take an active role in bringing about meaningful, enduring change for your family, friends, and community.

We are a powerful ally and advocate for Ocean County. Through advocacy at the local, state and federal levels, the Y is bringing families safe and affordable childcare and afterschool options; making healthy choices available in communities to help prevent chronic disease; and ensuring that Y’s have the ability to be a resource for healthy living, youth development and social responsibility in the communities they serve.

In 2016 The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation awards the Ocean County YMCA a 4-year $200,000 grant for the Toms River Family Health and Support Coalition. The YMCA and the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation serve as Co-Directors of the coalition. With a mission to mobilize a network that engages every resident with knowledge of and access to health resources.
