About The Y


Our History

As one of Naugatuck’s leading nonprofits committed to helping people and our community succeed, our contributions are both far-reaching and intimate—from influencing our culture during times of profound social change to the individual support we provide to seniors, adults, families and youth.
By nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving the borough’s health and well-being, and supporting and serving our neighbors, the Y ensures that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected and secure.
As we continue to serve our community, we continue to build upon a legacy of positive impact, developed through our many successes over the last 120 years on behalf of the individuals and communities we are privileged to serve.
