The YMCA of Greater San Antonio launched its Vision 2030 strategic plan, which aims to foster inclusive community well-being and address local needs, according to a March 7 news release.

The details

Through this plan, the YMCA will broaden its reach to ensure equitable access to programs and resources, according to the release.

The plan outlines four pillars and strategies focused on people, purpose, places and programs. Using these pillars, the organization will address needs faced by today’s youth, teens and families, according to the organization website.

According to the plan, supported areas include:
  • The need for a safe haven from any type of bullying or violence
  • The need to educate and prevent child abuse and neglect
  • The need to increase access to care to address health disparities
  • Challenges in holistic well-being, including mental health, chronic disease, and diabetes prevention
  • Individuals and families experiencing economic, literacy or educational challenges
  • The need to support those with diverse abilities
“Working on a vision plan takes people with different strengths and talents together toward a common goal,” said Louis Lopez, president and CEO of the YMCA of Greater San Antonio, in the release. “We are excited to share our work with staff members, Y members, parents, youth, community partners and even those who may not currently engage with the Y.”
