The YMCA of Greater Houston is a community-minded organization, committed to supporting the needs of those we serve in our Northeast Houston community. Since the devastation brought on our facility by Hurricane Harvey, we have worked diligently to make the best possible decisions for the future of our YMCA. We are excited to share that we will be entering into a partnership with the City of Houston and the Houston Parks Board to provide programs and services at this location. The City of Houston will acquire the YMCA property and facilities. Future programming at this site will include weekday classes and activities for active older adults provided by the YMCA, an expanded outdoor trail system, and programming in the facility and on the fields provided by the Houston Parks and Recreation Department.

The Y is so much more than a building and whether we are at a community center, a school, or a pool, we have been and will continue to be dedicated to providing engaging and enriching programs to our community in new and innovative ways. Currently we are focused on supporting our members and engaging the community through programs and services listed below.

We continue our commitment to developing teens. YMCA Achievers, a program for middle school and high school age youth, focuses on college readiness activities, leadership and service learning projects.


This program, done in partnership with school districts, apartment complexes and other community partners, provides free swim lessons to those who would otherwise not have access to swim lessons.

Opportunities for our Facility Members to enjoy activities such as strength training, cardiovascular exercise, swimming and other youth and adult programs, are available through our Citywide membership option.

The YMCA is committed to being a pillar in the Northeast Houston community - a place which offers fellowship, networking and much needed stress relief. It is our mission to continue to support the individuals and families that call the YMCA home.
