About Us

YMCA Mission

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all.


At the Y, we are so much more than a gym. We're a cause. We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That's why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Christian Emphasis

In 1821 George Williams started the first Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) in London, England to substitute Bible study and prayer for life on the streets. Over the next 188 years the YMCA has evolved into what it is today; influencing the lives of millions throughout the generations. As the YMCA has grown and developed throughout the years, the one steady principle throughout the history of the YMCA has been its dedication to Christian values and the idea of fostering, preserving and advancing the Christian purpose. This principle has been a constant for generations and will continue into the future.
