Because of you, our common vision of a healthier downtown Kansas City community will become a reality. Every dollar raised for the Downtown Y/Kirk Family Community Center will have a lasting impact on the people of Kansas City.

For 160 years the Y has been the leading nonprofit in Greater Kansas City for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We will soon be looking for talented new associates for our Downtown Y and throughout Kansas City.
