Welcome to the
In one way or another, we're all connected to the Y. Whether it's where you discovered a talent that became a lifelong passion, were encouraged by a mentor, or where you turn for support with a healthy lifestyle.
At the Valley Points Family YMCA, we believe our programming lays the groundwork for healthy futures, builds a sense of community, and conveys the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Yes, children learn to swim, kids have somewhere to go after school and we teach about healthy lifestyles, but the Y is far more than that. The Y is a place where kids find direction, families come together and people rally to make a difference.
With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living, and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that people of all ages and from all walks of life have access to the essentials needed to be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.
Dear Friends of the Valley Points Family YMCA:
It is our distinct privilege to be part of a cause-driven association of men, women and children committed to bringing about lasting personal and social change. With a focus on nurturing the potential of every child and teen, improving our community’s health and well-being and providing opportunities to give back and support others, our Y enables youth, adults, families and communities to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
You may have noticed that our Y logo has changed. YMCAs across the country are participating in a national brand revitalization that not only includes a fresh new look, but also a focus on strengthening community through Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility. While our look may have changed, our mission remains the same: to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
The Y is still about changing lives for the better. Deeply rooted in our community, the Y uses its knowledge to develop stronger, more inclusive communities, provide support for people and families, and promote positive change. The Y is a valuable community asset that works to ensure that everyone — regardless of age, income or background — has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. If you haven’t had the opportunity to come in and see what’s happening, we extend an invitation for you to visit us and discover what so many people already know: there’s no place like the Y for building community and relationships! Every day our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.
We would like to pay homage to our dedicated volunteers and staff who, through their commitment of time, energy and talents to our efforts, make all things possible. We are also grateful to our donors —individuals, companies, foundations and organizations —who enable us to make sure that no one is denied access to our programs and services because of an inability to pay. Thank you to all of you for your continued support and belief in the countless abilities of the Valley Points Family YMCA. We look forward to continuing to work with you to create a healthier community for all.

President & Chief Executive Officer
