EVERY LETTER COUNTS
You may have heard talk about the YMCA dropping three letters to now be called “the Y.” Well, we are happy to be referred to as the Y since it suggests a closer, friendlier relationship with people. However, we have not dropped any letters, nor the principles behind them. In fact, our new logo includes all four letters to the right of our main mark, so the YMCA, in every way, is here to stay.
The Christian principles we were founded upon 170 years ago remain, and our mission to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all will continue to guide our work for the next 170 years.

YMCA COMMITMENT TO DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
The YMCA is made up of all people from every walk of life, working side by side to strengthen our communities. Together, we approach our work using empathy and equity to ensure that everyone - members, volunteers, and staff - have the opportunity to reach their fullest God-Given potential with dignity. Our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility guide everything we do.
