Mission Statement
The mission of Telford YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
Background Statement
Founded in 1936 as the Telford Community Center to provide support to flood displaced central Kentuckians, later evolving into a community recreation center for the city of Richmond.  Established as a YMCA in 1986, the Telford YMCA has continued that legacy of community service to Richmond and Madison County.  During it's history as both a community center and a YMCA, countless individuals have been served through its many programs and services.  Currently serving over 5,000 individuals annually through membership, childcare, summer day camp, youth and adult sports, community wellness and youth, adult and senior aquatics and special needs programming, the YMCA continues a historic legacy of serving all regardless of their physical, mental, social or financial circumstances. 
Impact Statement
In the past year, the Telford has:
1.   Improved community outreach. By developing outreach opportunities through a Helping Hands program, which primarily targets individuals with substance abuse issues,  the YMCA has been able to engage almost 100 individuals from our community providing them healthy alternative programs and membership as they go about recovery from their addictions.  Additionally, the YMCA has, in spite of recent financial challenges, been able to continue providing direct financial assistance for programs and membership to almost 700 individuals annually, totaling almost 125,000.00.
2.  Through strategic partnerships and collaborations as well as an increased use of print, radio and social media, there has been a recognized improvement in awareness of the YMCA being a cause driven community service organization, focused on meeting community needs, rather than being identified solely as gym or fitness facility.
During the current year, the YMCA expects to accomplish:
3.  Continued improvement of the association's financial stability allowing for growth in programs and services delivered to our community.
4. Continue to improve our fundraising capacity by developing a structured and systematic approach to identifying and securing significant number in size and annual contributions as well as special events that improve the number of individuals served by our financial assistance program.
5.  Increase the number of engaged policy making volunteers.
Needs Statement
The development and implementation of a long range strategic plan is the current most pressing need.  Development of such a plan will provide staff and volunteers with the necessary guidance to address:
1.  Renovating or replacing an aging and inefficient facility that has a significant and negative impact upon the financial sustainability and image of the YMCA.
2.  Further defining the role of the YMCA in meeting community needs.
3.  Improving the level of the YMCA's annual and long term contributed income.
4.  Securing and retaining the highest quality staff and volunteers.
5.  Need to develop a mentoring program with EKU or others to aid and support the young men and women at risk. 
CEO/Executive Director Statement
As a charitable, not for profit, community service organization, the YMCA is uniquely positioned to address identified community needs through strategic partnerships and collaborations. The strength of the YMCA lies in its mission and its desire to serve all in our community without regard to who they are or what they do.  Opportunities to better serve our community exist because of our charitable designation and our ability to overcome and bridge obstacles created by cultural and political intolerance.
Board Chair Statement
   Since relocating to Madison County in 1998, I have been a member of the Y and a strong supporter of its mission. I have been a Board member for approximately 15 years until taking over as CEO in 2015.
Presently challenged by financial concerns that have limited our ability to expand our programs and services in the community, we have set about addressing them by first hiring a CEO that has experience in day to day operations and fundraising as well as a passion for his community and the YMCA movement.  He in turn is engaged in identifying and securing strong and competent staff that has a similar passion for serving others and making a difference in our community.  In support of the staff, our board is taking a more urgent and supportive approach to raising the funds necessary to provide the resources necessary to allow them to deliver the programs and services that best meet identified community needs.  Additionally, our board of directors is committed to a strategic planning process that will assist in identifying strategies to address facility infrastructure and programming concerns that are impacting the YMCA's cash flow and financial sustainability.  Those concerns aside, I believe this YMCA is poised to have an even greater impact on our community as a result of our past work and our efforts to continue moving forward.
