Dixon Family YMCA As a Partner in the Community


One of the most important and vital initiatives any business can take on is to be an active and supporting member of the community in which they serve.

The word “community” can be defined as common character, a social activity, and an interacting population of individuals with common interests.

Those definitions are an extension of our core values at Dixon Family YMCA. Through the various programs and philanthropies that we are involved in, it’s an honor to continue to be a valued, trusted partner in the Dixon community.

Strength and adaptation

We always take great pride in various programs geared toward youth development and social responsibility. In these uncertain times, adapting to – and creating new – healthy activities is more important than ever. As an example, to help families’ school schedules that were changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now offering afterschool programs for children who are in blended learning and who alternate their school days. By working with you and your children every day to grow and learn the values of teamwork, cooperation and sportsmanship, our community grows stronger and better.

Healthy habits

One of the YMCA’s main focuses is developing healthy habits while pursuing individual and group goals. Part of this philosophy is to promote everyone’s well-being, support our neighbors and each other, and affect positive change. These habits will not only encourage an enriched livelihood, but will lead to a thriving, vibrant sense of community for all of us.

Good relationships

Through your participation and our mutual interests, we have been fortunate to establish and grow many wonderful relationships with families, individuals, and businesses in our community. It is because of those relationships that we continue to strive to do more and do better.

Thank you for trusting the Dixon Family YMCA for allowing us to be your active partner in promoting youth development, health, and well-being. We look forward to the future with great positivity!
