The name and the mission are the same, but just about everything else has changed at Jackie Robinson Family YMCA.

After a 19-month renovation from the ground up, the "Y," which has served San Diego since 1943, is open again.

KPBS’ Ebone Monet spoke to Executive Director Michael Brunker about the opportunity to impact more families.
