YMCAs in the US have a proud history of serving the people in their communities in a variety of practical and effective ways. Y staff and volunteers never claimed to have the wisdom that would provide all the answers, but they did have the courage to attack huge problems. Much of what they did turned out to be historic. Their concern and dedication shine through their stories.
The mission of the Great Miami Valley YMCA is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy Spirit, Mind, and Body for all.
Through generous contributions from local businesses, members, and friends of the Great Miami Valley YMCA, no one is turned away from the YMCA due to inability to pay. These gifts make it possible to provide opportunities to children, individuals, and families which build self-confidence, promote healthly living, and develop positive values such as Faith, Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility .
