Social responsibility at the YSocial Responsibility

We know that when we work as one, we move people and communities forward. That's why we are committed to providing support to our neighbors and opportunities for kids, adults and families to give, join in or advocate in the name of stronger communities.

Social Services

To bring about meaningful change, individuals need ongoing encouragement and tools. We're here day-in and day-out to provide the resources our communities need to address the most pressing social issues: child welfare, education, employment, and housing. We work to make sure every child, family and community has what they need to achieve their best.

Volunteerism & Giving

The generosity of others is at the core of our existence. It is only through the support of our thousands of volunteers and public and private donors that we are able to give back to the communities we serve.

Advocacy

We are a powerful ally and advocate for our communities. Our experience and strong relationships in neighborhoods across the Capital District means that we are able to organize grassroots efforts and influence public policy around a range of social issues including child welfare, education and public health.
