Idaho Falls YMCA Community Needs Assessment



Your Opinion Matter - Idaho Falls YMCA


Idaho Falls YMCA Community Needs Assessment

The Idaho Falls YMCA invites you to take a short survey regarding the changing needs of our East Idaho community.

take the survey

Since 1945 the Idaho Falls YMCA has worked hard to provide unique programs that help keep pace with the changing needs of our community.  At the Idaho Falls YMCA, strengthening our community is the #1 priority.  The Y has listened and responded to the communities’ most critical social needs since its founding in 1945.

Why We Do This

We are committed to designing and delivering new programs and services that address the critical issues facing youth and teens, adults and seniors, and families in East Idaho.  We do this by gathering feedback from you and updating our programs that are focused on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.  In this way we continue to fulfill our mission of helping our community members live healthier and happier lives.

Your Opinion Matters

Your insights and opinions on the needs of our community matter to us.  We need your feedback on what East Idaho biggest needs are.  Don’t worry, your responses are not individually tracked and are kept confidential.  This simple survey should take no more than 5 minutes of your time to complete.
