Standing the test of time, 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.
In 2018 we focused on our strategic priorities that are critical to our community:
Today at the YMCA, our community continues to grow and build healthy foundations that enrich youth development, improve healthy living and ignite social responsibility. When we are all represented and every voice is heard, we can discover and develop the best in all of us.
Thank you for your support of our Y in 2018. With your help we have substantially grown our mission locally and have emerged as an innovative Y leader nationally. We are grateful for your commitment to serve until all can thrive.
- Increase opportunity, access and achievement for youth
- Improve the health and well-being of our community

Chief Operating Officer, Interim President and CEO
At the Y, we know communities can be safe, vital and cohesive, because we have seen it happen -- indeed, we have helped make it happen, by respecting all people and creating welcoming environments.
Today's communities urgently need us. It’s our responsibility to step in and make a difference.
For 164 years we’ve helped generations of people come together to find support, get healthier, learn new skills and make friends for life.
Every day throughout Central Ohio, someone is positively impacted through a YMCA experience.
