We're for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

For any organization to stand the test of time, it must be able to keep up with the world around it. Through all of our 125-year history, the YMCA of the Greater Houston Area has been a place where people can find hope, fellowship and healing. 

The YMCA has always stayed true to its mission, values and purpose of helping persons grow in spirit, mind and body. With 32 centers and over 300 program locations serving eleven counties, the YMCA of the Greater Houston Area is helping to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.

Our movement:
• Enables kids to realize their potential
• Offers ways for families to have fun together
• Welcomes and embraces newcomers
• Helps foster a nationwide service ethic

In Houston, across the nation and around the world, the accomplishments of the Y over the years reveal a mission to constantly search for innovative ways to meet community needs. An understanding of our history contributes to every decision we make, every program we offer and every value we practice. We celebrate our character daily, for years of conviction to do the right thing.
