building a better community


building a better community
As the 2010-11 year ends, we continue to move
forward with a strategy that will take us into the
future strong and ready to continue serving the
Northwest Florida community, where we‘ve
been an active presence for 130 years.
In the summer of 2010, the YMCA of the USA
formally and officially announced the launch of a
revitalized brand for the Y, which we embraced
fully in our local association last June. While the
design and colors of the brand changed, our
three areas of focus have remained unchanged:
we are for youth development, healthy living
and social responsibility. The main purpose of
our rebranding has been to clarify our cause so
we can better educate our members and the
community about the difference that we make in
our work. We are so much more than a gym or
a pool – we are men, women and children from
all walks of life, brought together with a shared
vision of making our community a better place
to live. Through our scholarship program, we
make sure that the Y continues to be a place for
everyone. While our new brand will help us
better interpret our work, our commitment to
community and Christian values remain
Many people don‘t realize the effect that the Y
has on the lives of those in our community, but
we make a tremendous impact every day. In
this annual report, we‘ll share the story of
Chandler MacGregor, a boy whose entire life has
changed for the better because of his Y
experience. The Y is not just a building. It‘s
people united by a spirit, a cause and a
responsibility to each other.
Our work over the past year supports the launch
of the new brand. We completed our board-led
strategic planning process, identifying the main
areas that will drive our focus in the coming
years: developing the total child into adulthood,
battling obesity and chronic disease, closing the
gaps in teen service and increasing our causedriven funding.
We had a strong year for our Partner with Youth
annual support campaign, adding two dozen
members to our Chairman‘s Roundtable – those
donors who give $1,000 or more in a calendar
year and are recognized with banners in our
branches. The money raised through this
campaign helps us guarantee that no adult,
child or family will ever be turned away.
We continue to realign our leadership staff to
guide our operations. Long-time staff member
Dottie Thomas has been promoted to full Branch
Director of the Pullum Branch in Navarre. At
year‘s end, we also welcomed veteran Y
professional Mike Smiley as our new District
Executive over the Downtown and Northeast
We again humbly thank all those individuals –
members, donors, volunteers and other
advocates – who continue to make our work
possible. It is all of you who truly make the Y
the diverse, vibrant and meaningful organization
that it is.

Michael Bodenhausen, CEO
We have been the community‘s leader in childcare for more
than 40 years, responding to the critical need for quality childcare that supports and strengthens all families. We are dedicated to nurturing the potential of kids in a safe and fun-filled
environment where kids and young teens can learn, grow and
thrive together. Nearly 650 children participated in childcare
programs at our branches and on-site at schools. Locally, we
are the largest provider of school-age childcare and continue
to expand the quantity and quality of programs we offer.
When school is out, parents still need safe and stimulating environments for their children. Y camp does just that, offering
a variety of activities that promote hands-on learning and
team work with others – a great alternative to TV, video
games or an empty house. More than 700 children flexed their
minds and their muscles through summer day camp and holiday camp programs.
We opened our first VPK (Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten) site at
the Pullum Branch. Through this state-licensed program, we
focused on developing the building blocks of education in 4year-old‘s to help prepare them for success in school ahead.
We welcomed 40 children into this program.
In Y sports, we build skills, values and fun in a way that offers an alternative to highly competitive programs. There are
no tryouts, each child plays at least half of every game, and
parents are encouraged to play an active role in practices and
games. Nearly 2,000 children and 200 volunteers from the
two-county area had a ball while developing character values
through sports such as soccer, flag football, basketball and
Living in a beautiful coastal community, we want our children
to learn safety in and around the water. Swim lessons at the
Y give children the skills to be safe in the water, plus a sense
of accomplishment from learning something new and a great
way to exercise for life. We taught more than 1,600 swim lessons to children who developed their water skills through Y
swim lessons at our pools, while more than 3,000 enjoyed
recreational summer fun in the water.
We believe that personal wellness is vital for the
men, women and children we serve. Our goal is to
create opportunities for our members to feel
healthy, welcome and connected as they grow in
spirit, mind and body. This year, more than 7,500
men, women and children from all walks of life
gathered at the Y for fitness, fun and fellowship. This diversity truly makes the Y a place for
We believe in expanding our definition of healthy
living beyond the weight room. Our Corporate
Cup Games promote wellness in the workplace
while building company pride and camaraderie.
The Body Challenge and Waist Management Challenge offered adults support and good-natured
competition to make lasting changes in their
health. Meanwhile, martial arts, running club and
SCUBA remained staples of the Y menu of wellness programs.
We believe that the Y‘s resources belong to the community, so we make it a priority to share our blessings
with individuals and groups all year round. We open
our buildings to community groups who need a place
to meet, work and play—groups like the Special Olympics swim team, churches, reading tutors and Scout
groups. At our Downtown Branch, we offered 3,300
free showers annually to transient individuals in need
of a place to clean up.
We support other area nonprofits by offering membership packages to help them in their event fundraising.
And through our Halloween at the Y event, we offer a
safe and fun trick-or-treating experience for 300 special
needs children who have the chance to engage with
others in this unique holiday party.

Among our professional staff, 100% contribute to our annual

We have made every effort to produce a complete and accurate
list of this year’s donors. If we have made an error or omission,
please notify us so that we may update our list.
According to doctors, Chandler McGregor shouldn‘t have lived long enough
to celebrate his first birthday. He was one of a set of quadruplets, delivered to
Katina White when she was 21½ weeks pregnant. At birth, he weighed just 15
ounces. As a newborn, he underwent open heart surgery, spent months in the
NICU and eventually had 20 diagnoses, including autism, cerebral palsy, epilepsy and failure to thrive.
But Chandler defied the odds, and today, at age 11, is thriving at Holm
Elementary and in the Y‘s after-school child care program and summer day
The family was living in Gulf Shores, but Katina says the schools there
simply couldn‘t handle her son‘s complex needs. She moved to Florida in
search of better care for Chandler, and, after months of meetings and documentation, was able to enroll him at Holm.
Katina, a West Florida nurse manager, needed after-school care to keep
her job, but she knew she needed to find the right place with the right staff to
make it work. She found a program for kids with special needs, but her doctor‘s recommendation was that Chandler needed to be around more typical
kids to progress. Anything less, and he predicted Chandler would lose ground.
She learned that the Y offered after-school care at Holm and decided to approach staff to see if they
could manage her son‘s needs. She vividly remembers meeting Child Care Director Angela James and
her words: ―You know what, there‘s no guarantee. But we‘re going to give it a good try!‖ That good try
quickly turned into an answer to Katina‘s prayer in the form of the Y and especially Site Director Joyce
―He started talking to me, and I just connected with him,‖ Joyce says. She learned Chandler‘s preferences and needs, worked closely with him on homework strategies, and developed a special relationship
with him. ―I remember the first time he said, ‗Ms. Joyce, I love you. Last night I prayed for you.‘ I
started crying.‖
―Ms. Joyce is so in tune with Chandler,‖ Katina says. ―She can calm him down. She knows if there‘s
something wrong. I have total confidence in her. She takes care of him like I do. She loves my child!‖
Chandler‘s mother was so thrilled at the progress her son made at the Y‘s after-school program that
she decided to enroll him in summer camp. ―Chandler excelled in camp. Learning to swim and being with
children his own age allowed his social skills to mature,‖ she explains. That success has continued, as
Chandler now makes eye contact with others, introduces himself and engages in conversation – all social
skills he‘s developed at the Y.
To the casual observer, Chandler fits in quite nicely with the rest of the Y kids. What does he like
about summer camp? ―I get to play outside, swim and talk with friends I‘ve made,‖ he says. And his
opinion of Ms. Joyce? ―She‘s a really good counselor!‖
―If he hadn‘t made it at the Y‘s program, I would have had to quit my job, and I don‘t know what we
would have done,‖ Katina says. ―The Y has given him a sense of belonging and has helped him with a
sense of accomplishment.‖
―Without Ms. Joyce, he could not be successful in this program. He loves her like a mother. She has
changed his life, and our whole family‘s life, forever.‖
We are committed to sharing the Y with all men, women
and children, regardless of their financial situation.
Nearly 700 donors contributed more than $172,000 to
our Partner with Youth Campaign over the past fiscal
year. We also receive United Way and grant support that
enables us to reach even more people in need. We value
our partnership with those who demonstrate how much
they value the Y experience by giving so generously.
