our Focus

Healthy Living

Improving our community’s health and well-being. 

Children, youth, teens, adults, families and seniors are receiving the support, guidance and resources they need to achieve greater health and well-being for their spirit, mind and body.

Youth Development

Nurturing the potential of every child, youth and teen.

We believe that all children, youth and teens deserve the opportunity to discover who they are and what they can achieve.

Social Responsibility

Giving back and providing support to our neighbors.

The Y has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical social needs since 1885. Through the Y, volunteers and donors, leaders and partners across the Monadnock Region are empowering the community to be inclusive, confident, connected and secure.
