Annual Report


Dear Friends,<br />

In many homes, the kitchen is a place where people gather in anticipation <strong>of</strong><br />

a meal, discuss the events <strong>of</strong> the day or share one another’s challenges.<br />

From our kitchens come the foods which, with their comforting<br />

ingredients, form memories, provide nourishment and<br />

<strong>of</strong>fer words <strong>of</strong> encouragement. We view our <strong>YMCA</strong> as the<br />

community’s kitchen – a place with the ingredients that<br />

help youth and teens develop into strong adults, where<br />

families find support and kids find caring adults who<br />

listen to their hopes and dreams.<br />

Children are our most important asset – and we believe<br />

that each child is a resource worth the investment. A commitment<br />

to creating a better world for youth is one <strong>of</strong> the ingredients that makes<br />

us all asset-builders. We believe that families are not only determined by biology, but by those<br />

whom you care about. A desire to reach out to families in need is an ingredient that makes all <strong>of</strong><br />

us compassionate. The <strong>YMCA</strong> believes in community; no one can do it alone. A commitment<br />

to the welfare <strong>of</strong> others is one <strong>of</strong> the ingredients that makes us human.<br />

The past year has been tremendously successful for the <strong>YMCA</strong> <strong>of</strong> <strong>Greater</strong> <strong>Houston</strong>.<br />

Recognizing that the pr<strong>of</strong>ile <strong>of</strong> a “typical” family is changing, we created a new income-based<br />

membership program, “Membership for All.”<br />

We expanded our apartment outreach programs from 13 to 15 sites, taking <strong>YMCA</strong> services<br />

and programs directly to those who cannot come to our traditional centers. Attendance at our<br />

three resident camps grew by 10 percent. We also opened 11 inner-city day camps, with a total<br />

<strong>of</strong> 72 day and teen camps in all, providing a fun, life-changing experience for children.<br />

This year we continued our commitment to helping those displaced by Hurricane Katrina<br />

by participating in the <strong>Houston</strong>’s Kids project, joining with several other organizations to<br />

provide summer day camp in the Alief community to nearly 500 children, many <strong>of</strong> them<br />

Katrina survivors. Their lives were enriched through a nurturing summer experience while<br />

giving their families peace <strong>of</strong> mind, knowing their children were in a safe environment. The<br />

<strong>Houston</strong>’s Kids project was so successful that we continued it by <strong>of</strong>fering after school programs<br />

for the same children through this entire school year.<br />

We began construction on two new family <strong>YMCA</strong>s, the Thelma Ley Anderson Family<br />

<strong>YMCA</strong>, serving the Alvin area, and the West Orem Family <strong>YMCA</strong>. We raised $3.5 million to<br />

acquire a former YWCA facility on Waugh Drive, which will provide much-needed services<br />

to that area.<br />

Once again, we balanced our $94 million budget and funded our reserves. The <strong>2006</strong><br />

Partners Campaign hit an all-time fund raising high <strong>of</strong> $4,765,467. Combine that number<br />

with our United Way support and the generous contributions <strong>of</strong> our other partners, and we<br />

made available close to $14 million in services to <strong>of</strong>ten underserved children and families in<br />

<strong>Houston</strong> and surrounding areas.<br />

The <strong>YMCA</strong> is an undeniably essential part <strong>of</strong> <strong>Greater</strong> <strong>Houston</strong>. For 121 years, we have been<br />

meeting the needs <strong>of</strong> our diverse and changing communities.<br />

Respect, responsibility, honesty, caring and faith – all are ingredients – when mixed with our<br />

volunteers, donors, members and staff, create recipes to live by… recipes for life. The kitchen in<br />

which all <strong>of</strong> these ingredients are mixed is the <strong>YMCA</strong>. You’re welcome to stop by any time.<br />

Warmest regards,<br />

<strong>Houston</strong>’s Kids<br />

Because every child is our child<br />

Eight year old Kenny Argueta hadn’t been excited about much <strong>of</strong><br />

anything lately, according to his mom. Originally from Mexico,<br />

during the school year he struggled to learn English and didn’t have<br />

many friends. This summer, he participated in <strong>YMCA</strong> Day Camp.<br />

Take ingredients<br />

like mentorship and<br />

encouragement and add<br />

kids like Kenny to the mix – the<br />

result is confidence and a sense<br />

<strong>of</strong> purpose that will shine<br />

Alief Family <strong>YMCA</strong> camp counselor Elisabeth Cooper said, “On<br />

the first day <strong>of</strong> camp he was so shy that the counselors had a<br />

hard time communicating with him.”<br />

For many children like Kenny, summer is not a time <strong>of</strong> fun and<br />

new experiences, but a time <strong>of</strong> boredom and temptation to<br />

engage in dangerous activities. To help prevent this, the <strong>YMCA</strong><br />

– as part <strong>of</strong> a collaboration with the United Way, the Joint City<br />

County Commission on Children, Communities in Schools, the<br />

Alief Independent School District and the Children’s Museum <strong>of</strong><br />

<strong>Houston</strong> – provided summer day camp to nearly 500 students<br />

in the Alief community, many <strong>of</strong> them displaced by Hurricanes<br />

Katrina and Rita.<br />

Kenny Argueta<br />

As summer progressed, Kenny began to change. Camp<br />

counselors encouraged Kenny to try new things and set high<br />

goals for himself. He met other kids who were like him and<br />

learned how to get along with kids who were different. He felt<br />

accepted and valued.<br />

Kenny’s mom watched as excitement returned to her son’s<br />

smile. “He would get up early every morning and put his camp<br />

shirt on, waiting for me to bring him to camp,” she said. “This<br />

program is the best thing that has ever happened to him.”<br />

Camp<br />

Pine Tree<br />

A lifetime <strong>of</strong> memories<br />

“I’m going next year but only for five days, because more<br />

than five days… I will miss you too much, Mom, but I am<br />

going to camp again next year,” 11 year old Landon Fanguy<br />

said to his mother.<br />

Last summer at <strong>YMCA</strong> Camp Pine Tree, Landon earned an award<br />

for courage, while his little brother Zachary, received an award for<br />

friendship. During camp, big brother Landon comforted eight year<br />

old Zachary, who was homesick. Landon hugged Zachary, telling<br />

him that things would be okay. When camp director Justin<br />

Conner phoned Landon’s mother to tell her about Landon’s<br />

behavior, she couldn’t believe it.<br />

A supportive, empowering<br />

environment and caring adults<br />

who believe all children can<br />

succeed – mix those ingredients<br />

and a healthy child emerges.<br />

More than 13,700 young people<br />

like Landon developed their<br />

self-worth at <strong>YMCA</strong> <strong>Houston</strong><br />

resident camps in <strong>2006</strong>.<br />

“This was a child my husband and I felt would never<br />

experience the same thing as other children could,” says<br />

Nicole Fanguy.<br />

Landon Fanguy<br />

Landon has autism – a developmental disorder that makes<br />

it difficult for him to communicate and socialize, leaving him<br />

emotionally detached from people; Landon must follow a strict<br />

routine just to get through the day. When Nicole Fanguy called<br />

several <strong>Houston</strong> area summer camps, none <strong>of</strong> them would take her<br />

son, but <strong>YMCA</strong> Camp Pine Tree staff welcomed him, recognizing<br />

that camp would be beneficial to Landon, and that Landon would be<br />

beneficial to camp.<br />

“Landon was scared to do things, but he<br />

tried everything at camp, even rock wall climbing.<br />

We are all so proud<br />

tablespoons<br />

<strong>of</strong> him,” says Landon’s<br />

“It couldn’t have been a better experience…<br />

Because all<br />

children need a Y<br />

Northwest Family <strong>YMCA</strong><br />

A crowded apartment complex filled with families and children,<br />

sometimes interrupted by police sirens or gunshots, may be the<br />

last place you’d expect to find a <strong>YMCA</strong>.<br />

But the <strong>YMCA</strong> goes where it is needed most –<br />

sometimes into our most troubled communities.<br />

The Luxor Park Apartments is such a place.<br />

“It helps the parents because we know our children are safe,”<br />

says Tamishe Darden, a Luxor Park resident whose seven year<br />

old son, Jaelon, participates in free swim lessons <strong>of</strong>fered by the<br />

Northwest Family <strong>YMCA</strong>.<br />

Shawn and Jaelon<br />

Luxor Park is one <strong>of</strong><br />

15 <strong>Houston</strong> area<br />

apartment complexes<br />

that are home to<br />

<strong>YMCA</strong> outreach<br />

programs.<br />

Adults who care,<br />

coupled with creative<br />

activities and a safe<br />

environment – these<br />

ingredients, blended<br />

together, create a strong<br />

foundation for children<br />

to build upon as they<br />

embrace their future.<br />

Through a partnership with apartment complex managers, the<br />

<strong>YMCA</strong> moved into the clubhouse at Luxor Park, which now<br />

hosts Y programs like homework assistance, youth sports,<br />

karate and hip hop dance.<br />

This summer, <strong>YMCA</strong> staff gave swim lessons to 21 children<br />

at Luxor Park. “We think every kid deserves the same<br />

opportunity,” says Northwest <strong>YMCA</strong> Executive Director<br />

Shawn Borzelleri. “I see us connecting with the kids and<br />

<strong>of</strong>fering them structure and stability.”<br />

“It just takes one person in their lives to make a positive<br />

impact,” says Jaelon’s mom.<br />

What does Jaelon think <strong>of</strong> Shawn? “She is brave. She helps<br />

people,” he says.<br />

Ed and Lynn Murphy<br />

Lake <strong>Houston</strong> Family <strong>YMCA</strong><br />

A road to recovery<br />

On January 6, 1992, Ed Murphy was on his ro<strong>of</strong> removing Christmas<br />

lights when he fell, landing on the driveway. With severe injuries to his<br />

brain, he underwent emergency surgery that ended in a month-long,<br />

drug induced coma.<br />

Recipes for Life<br />

Last year at the <strong>YMCA</strong>, seniors<br />

experienced more than 43,900<br />

life-changing moments - all part <strong>of</strong> a<br />

unique recipe that combined<br />

R e c i p e s f o r L i f e<br />

Mr. Murphy soon recuperated physically, but his mental<br />

recovery was slower. He was diagnosed with aphasia,<br />

a language disorder caused by his brain damage. The<br />

disorder impairs his ability to express himself. “He had to<br />

learn all over again,” says his wife, Lynn.<br />

Frustrated, Ed became severely depressed. After more<br />

than a decade <strong>of</strong> struggling, his wife turned to the Lake<br />

<strong>Houston</strong> Family <strong>YMCA</strong> in 2004. “We were looking to fill<br />

a void,” she says.<br />

They joined the <strong>YMCA</strong>’s Active Older Adults program.<br />

“We started with water aerobics. Now, he has flourished,”<br />

she says.<br />

Once unable to turn a key in a lock, Ed Murphy now comes<br />

into the <strong>YMCA</strong> to swim, lift weights and even make c<strong>of</strong>fee<br />

for the other members. While speaking is still difficult, Ed<br />

makes one thing especially clear.<br />

“The people here know me. I can talk and<br />

listen to things. They know me as ‘Mr. Ed.’”<br />

“The <strong>YMCA</strong> gives us a renewed appreciation <strong>of</strong> how<br />

important fellowship is,” Mrs. Murphy says.<br />

hope and friendship.<br />

No matter your age or ability, we all<br />

need to feel valued and connected.

a new life<br />

Where we make<br />

time for everyone<br />

Westland Family <strong>YMCA</strong><br />

When Viola Williams came to the<br />

<strong>YMCA</strong> looking for a swimming lesson,<br />

she found a warm, welcoming place, rich<br />

with ingredients like kindness and caring<br />

- a place where people make time for her.<br />

Nearly 876,000 people walked through<br />

“My mother and I almost drowned last year<br />

during Hurricane Katrina.”<br />

our doors last year; each person walked<br />

out changed for the better.<br />

Viola Williams says that when the levee broke near her mother’s New Orleans home, the<br />

water rose so fast that she and her mom panicked. Neither <strong>of</strong> them knew how to swim.<br />

Luckily, her brother pulled them to safety through the attic and onto the ro<strong>of</strong>. Rescued<br />

by a passing boater, the family spent a harrowing night on a highway overpass. A bus<br />

eventually brought them to <strong>Houston</strong>. After finding housing and a job, Viola knew she<br />

had to make other changes. She soon signed up for swimming lessons at the Westland<br />

Family <strong>YMCA</strong>.<br />

“I chose the Y because it’s based on your income,” she said.<br />

But Viola soon realized she was getting more than her money’s worth in her two young<br />

instructors, 21 year old Jyme Roundtree and 19 year old Dalen Fitzgerald.<br />

“I was amazed; they are young and most young people don’t put forth that<br />

kind <strong>of</strong> effort,” Williams remarked. “They made time for me.”<br />

Viola wrote Jyme and Dalen a thank you letter for helping her<br />

learn to keep her head above water. In it, she said they were,<br />

“Extremely patient, helpful and they went above and beyond.”<br />

Dear Donors,<br />

Thank you for your generous financial support <strong>of</strong> the kids and families that participate in <strong>YMCA</strong><br />

programs. Your donation enables <strong>YMCA</strong> volunteers and staff to provide a nurturing environment in<br />

which young people learn leadership skills, peaceful conflict resolution and core values. Your gift also<br />

supports programs that provide families with the resources they need to build a better life for their<br />

children and themselves – programs such as parenting classes, literacy programs and events designed<br />

to build on each family’s strengths.<br />

More than 7,000 kids and families are the beneficiaries <strong>of</strong> your caring gift.<br />

You are a key ingredient in the success <strong>of</strong> our <strong>YMCA</strong>.<br />

Thank you,<br />

Gerri Ayers<br />

<strong>2006</strong> Partners Campaign Chair<br />
