TRANSFORMING LIVES.

TRANSFORMING COMMUNITY.

We have the opportunity to turn a 10-acre property in Downtown Batavia into a HEALTHY LIVING CAMPUS, in collaborations with Rochester Regional Health United Memorial Medical Center. Together we will offer a continuum of care in one location, blending prevention, wellness and rehabilitation services. 

OUR VISION FOR

A HEALTHIER COMMUNTIY

Built in the 1950s, the Genesee Y has been renovated and expanded over the years to meet the growing and changing needs of our community. We know we must address our facility again today, but it no longer makes financial sense to put additional money into an aging building and not reinvest into programs. space for family programming and social space is lacking. additionally, our current site is landlocked and we cant build up or out.

This is why we are launching our TRANSFORMING LIVES CAPITAL CAMPAIGN to builds a Healthy Living Campus and create a stronger and healthier community for generations.
