Our Story

The YMCA is a charity, open to all that is dedicated to youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. For 39 years, we have been proud to help our neighbors learn, grow and thrive. Just like many other Y’s, the YMCA started with nothing but a dream to serve our community. A group of dedicated volunteers started the YMCA in 1979. Back then, we served our community through donated spaces. In 1992, the dream of a building came to life and was established in 1993 with an expansion of the Wellness Floor in 2005. Today the YMCA employees 85+ people and serves approximately 5000 through membership and thousands of others through its programs. With programs from A to Z – like athletics to advocacy, Cancer Recovery and Learn to Swim, Open Doors to volunteerism – we don’t just strengthen individuals, we strengthen the entire community. Our community faces growing challenges that create a greater need for the work we do. With the help of our members, volunteers, staff and donors we see opportunities to make a meaningful difference.
