Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In addition to continuing to provide the full range of critical social services; inclusive education and recreation programs (after school; day camp; nursery school); and support for new families, the very young and older adults the YM & YWHA of Washington Heights and Inwood will:
1) Expand the number of local older adults aging in place who are connected to the continuum of care through the Y.
2) Establish a high-quality Center for Workforce Development for two age brackets: 14-24-years-old and 25-64-years-old.
