The La Porte County Family YMCA is a leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We are a powerful association of men, women and children of all ages and stages of life, joined together by a shared passion - to build a better community.
We are committed to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Our Y ensures that everyone, regardless of age or income, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. We believe lasting personal and social change happens when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our community.
To enable us to us live our cause, Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders. Our dedicated supporters paint walls, coach basketball teams, direct racers at our annual triathlon and raise funds to help ensure our programs remain accessible to all. With their help, we impact thousands of kids and adults each and every month.
There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. Be a part of a cause committed to moving people and communities forward.
Nurturing the potential of every child and teen.
All kids deserve the opportunity to discover who they are
and what they can achieve, under the guidance of adults who
care about them and believe in their potential. We see every
interaction with young people as an opportunity for learning
FOR YOUTH DEVELOPMENT.
FOR HEALTHY LIVING.
Improving our community’s health and well-being.
Health and well-being are all about balance. At the Y we help people build and maintain healthy habits for spirit, mind and body in their daily lives. Through our group exercise classes, youth sports, swim lessons, Evidence-Based Health Intervention programs and more, we help kids, adults, families and seniors get happier and healthier and our community become stronger.
FOR SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY.
Giving back and providing to our neighbors.
With our doors open to all, we work every day to connect people from all backgrounds across La Porte County and provide support to those who need us most. We take on the most urgent needs in our community and inspire a spirit of service in return. Our members, volunteers, supporters and staff demonstrate the power of what we can achieve by giving back together.
