About Us

What the YMCA Means to You.

The YMCA Mission is "To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all". Together we have enriched the lives of thousands of families and individuals in our community. We offer youth, adult, senior, and family health and fitness programs as well as provide safe, affordable child care for Rowan County youth.

As a YMCA member YOU are part of a worldwide movement, which is in over 120 countries dedicated to making this world a better place—one person at a time. Collectively, YMCA's are the largest not-for-profit community service organization in America. YMCA's are at the heart of community life in over 2,800 neighborhoods and towns across our great nation. Y's are for people of all faiths, races, abilities, ages and incomes. No one is turned away for inability to pay. We believe that the YMCA's strength is in the people we bring together.
