The West Essex YMCA is a charity, we are a 501-C-3 not for profit organization. Donations made to us are considered a tax deductible gift. We take care of between 750 and 800 children every day in our Extended Day Programs so their moms and dads can go to work knowing that their children are safe and well cared for. Before and After School Programs are a collaboration between the Board of Education of Livingston, West Orange, Caldwell, West Caldwell, Roseland, and West Essex YMCA. The purpose of Extended Day Care is to provide before/after care to the students of working parents.
