Better Together

The Duneland YMCA launched the first series of events, introducing the plans for our YMCA Healthy Living Campus of Duneland to the community. Leaders from across the region gathered to learn more about this innovative project and the partners who will also call the YMCA Healthy Living Campus home.

As successful as the Y has been working on its own and from its current location, market research and community input suggest that the Y could do and be more. To multiply resources, increase efficiencies and enhance effectiveness the Y has sought out collaborative partners whose programs, services, and reach will compliment and supplement its own. Embracing the “better together” ethos, the Y is excited to be a catalyst for collaboration and collective impact.

We look forward to continuing to get out and about in the community to share these exciting details.

Special thanks our speakers Raeann Trakas (Cleveland-Cliffs), Mariann Frigo (Jacob’s Ladder), Tina Raffin (Duneland YMCA Board Member), Senator Rodney Pol, Alisha Berglund (Berglund Construction), Lorelei Weimer (Indiana Dunes Tourism).

YMCA Board of Directors would like to thank CAPTRUST, Mark, and Staci Chamberlain for their generous support of the Better Together Breakfast. Sponsorships for special events like the Better Together Breakfast allow the YMCA to publicly share the Healthy Living Campus transformation vision with community leaders.
