The Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA has proudly served the Tri-State Community for 150 years. The Y is, and will always be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected, and secure children, adults, families, and communities. With a focus on Youth Development, Healthy Living, Social Responsibility, Eliminating Racism, and Empowering Women, the Y: nurtures the potential of every child and teen, improves the community's health and well-being, gives back and provides support to the most vulnerable, promotes peace, justice, and freedom, and empowers women, men, and families.

With a vision to unite around Strengthening Community, the Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA collaborates with others to address the most pressing needs facing our community because the Y believes that lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together. Every day we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income, or background has the opportunity to learn, grown, and thrive. At the Y, no child, family or adult is turned away for an inability to pay.

The Dubuque Community YMCA/YWCA directly impacts over 10,000 people a year-about 1 in 6 in the City of Dubuque, Iowa. The Y impacts the community through: early childhood child care, before and after school child care, membership, mentoring, youth, adult, and family programming, summer day camp, zip lining, and Y's domestic violence shelter. In addition, the Y employs over 275 people and offers volunteer opportunities to nearly 1,000 of our neighbors.
Noah and Joey have been matched 16 months in the Reach & Rise Mentoring Program. During a conversation with mentor Noah he told me, "He's (Joey) growing into his own skin, he's more confident now than when we started and he's able to start and keep a conversation these days. He's just so much more comfortable with himself now." With caring mentors, kids are able to develop skills that help them become successful adults in today's world.
