YMCA needs your help in community needs survey

The YMCA has served Plainfield for over 130 years
and is looking for ways to meet 21st century needs of youngsters and families.

The Plainfield Area YMCA is asking the community to help design new programs to fit the needs of 21st Plainfield youngsters and families.

CEO Ravenell Williams IV and the YMCA Board of Directors are reaching out to the greater Plainfield community with an online needs assessment survey, and I hope that as a reader who is interested in Plainfield's future you will take a moment to pitch in and help.

The online survey can be found at Plainfield Area YMCA Need Assessment. The survey will be available online through Friday, October 11. All results are anonymous and the report will be used by the YMCA and its community partners to design new programs better fitted to the needs of today's youngsters and families, addressed to the YMCA's three core focuses: Youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

If you have any questions or can think of other ways to help the YMCA's mission, please reach out to Ravenell at (908) 756-6060 or by email to

And thanks for taking the time to help.
