Who We Are
Established in Nevada, MO, we are an organization like no other. The Osage Prairie YMCA has been the leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community by empowering young people, improving the health and well-being of people of all ages and inspiring action in and across our community since 1996. Guided by our core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility, the Y is dedicated to giving people of all ages, backgrounds and walks of life the opportunity to reach their full potential with dignity.
Strengthening community is our cause. We know that a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health, and our neighbors. By connecting people from different backgrounds, perspectives, and generations, we ensure that all have access to the opportunities, relationships, and resources necessary to learn, grow and thrive.
The Osage Prairie YMCA is committed to be an organization that serves our entire community. We not only accept our differences but embrace them in all that we do; with our staff and volunteers, our members, our programs, and the community we serve. We believe that inclusiveness makes us a stronger and more impactful organization as we strive to create an environment where everyone feels welcome.
