Together, the nation's 2,500 plus YMCAs are the leading nonprofit cause driven organizations in America, working together to build healthy, confident, connected & secure children, adults, families and communities. Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.
Each year, we meet the health and social service needs of over 19 million men, women and children in 10,000 plus communities throughout the United States. YMCAs are for people of all faiths, races, abilities, ages and incomes. No one is turned away for inability to pay.
Because all communities have different needs, all Ys are different. A Y in your community may offer child care or teen leadership clubs, where as, a Y in the next town may have swimming lessons or drawing classes. While many in numbers, we are all dedicated to nurturing youth development, energizing healthy living and inspiring social responsibility in the communities we serve.
The Y stretches beyond the United States, at work in more than 120 countries around the world, serving more than 45 million people.
