Mission Statement: The Yonkers Family YMCA is committed to diversity and inclusion for all. We are focused on uplifting our community through the positive development of our youth, promotion of healthy living and fulfilling our social responsibility. We believe in social justice and are guided by a strong spiritual foundation. We work globally and locally for the overall success of our community.
We work to achieve our mission by changing the lives of people, addressing the everyday challenges of health, poverty, and race. The Y accomplishes this for children, seniors, and families, by creating a safe environment, providing a place to play and grow, and ensuring many do not go to bed hungry.
EVERYONE BELONGS AT THE Y
Welcome to the Yonkers Family YMCA. We’re part of a nonprofit organization of over 2,700 Ys located in 10,000 communities across the United States dedicated to strengthening the communities that they serve. With a focus on developing the potential of youth, improving individual health and well-being, and giving back to and supporting communities, your participation brings about meaningful change not just within yourself, but also in your community.
WHAT THE Y MEANS TO OUR COMMUNITY
The staff are friendly and helpful. It matters to me, as a person of color, that it's diverse - I see and meet all kinds of people there, all ages, all races, men and women. As I get older my body needs more attention, and using the fitness room at the Y regularly makes all the difference."

Somehow, with that being said, they manage to make sure that the children and adults are all served with good, healthy items. It is great to know that YMCA's do more than just wellness activities."
