Our Commitment

Welcome to the YMCA of Central Ohio! We are an inclusive organization of individuals joined together by a shared commitment to strengthen our communities by empowering all kids, improving individual and community well-being, and inspiring action to meet the greatest needs in the communities we serve.

Inside and outside the walls of our 13 locations, we work to uplift the spirits, minds and bodies of individuals, families and communities in a meaningful and lasting way.

We believe all families should have access to affordable, high-quality child care.

We believe whole-person health is built from the inside out. 

We believe safe, stable, and affordable housing is a necessity for achieving security and other basic needs. 

More Than A Gym
Access to health and wellness is a mission-critical indicator of strong communities. Everything the YMCA of Central Ohio does is aimed at ensuring health, wellness, and opportunity for all.
