A New Model for Community Wellness

The next generation of the YMCA is coming in 2019! This 140,000 square foot state-of-the-art new facility will be a nationally recognized collaborative model that will  achieve the YMCA mission through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility.

One of the greatest misconceptions about the YMCA is that the Y is just a building with a pool and a gym. The reality is that the YMCA is a powerful agent of change focused on strengthening our community. With this new branch, the YMCA is expanding its services to meet the needs of more individuals, families, children, and seniors and helping make the area a more vibrant community for all.
