The YMCA of Central Ohio

Listening and responding to our community's most critical social needs

The YMCA of Central Ohio has been listening and responding to our communities’ most critical social needs for over 160 years. We believe that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to nurture the potential of every child and teen; improve our community’s health and well-being and give back in support of our neighbors. That’s why everything we do exemplifies our commitment to Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Whether it’s developing future leaders; welcoming, celebrating and connecting diverse demographic populations; providing shelter and critical supportive services to those experiencing homelessness; developing platforms for social enterprise, or advocating and collaborating with policymakers, community organizations and leaders, the Y fosters the care and respect all people need and deserve to become their best selves. Through the Y, thousands of volunteers, donors, leaders and partners are empowering Central Ohioans and the communities in which they live, to be healthy, confident, connected and secure.
