The YMCA's mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all
Through programs and services, the YMCA seeks to provide youth a healthy, values-rich environment in which to live, grow and play.
The YMCA is committed to providing a positive, supportive, healthy environment for people seeking to live a healthier life and working to improve community wellness through programs as well as policy and environmental changes.
Volunteers are the core of the YMCA. Each branch is governed by a group of community volunteers as well as supported by hundreds of volunteers that offer needed community programs and services. In addition to volunteer opportunities, the YMCA also offers programming in needed gap areas in the communities they serve.
To fulfill these commitments, the YMCA conducts an annual Strong Kids Campaign to raise funds so that no one is ever turned away from a YMCA membership, program or service due to inability to pay. Financial Assistance Scholarships are available at all YMCA branches. Please contact your local branch to apply or for more information.
