Our Cause
The Y is a cause-driven organization that is for youth development, for healthy living and for social responsibility. A strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors.
• The Y is community-centered. For over 130 years, we've been listening and responding to our communities.
• The Y brings people together. All ages and backgrounds connect to bridge the gaps in community needs.
• The Y nurtures potential. We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.
• The Y has local presence and global reach. We mobilize local communities to effect lasting, meaningful change.

Areas of Focus
At the Y, we’ve always known that positive change only comes about when we invest in our kids, our health and our neighbors. All of our programs and community initiatives fall into one or more of the following focus areas: YOUTH DEVELOPMENT, HEALTHY LIVING, and SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

The Y is a leading nonprofit organization that has been an integral part of Houston for more than 130 years. The sustainability of YMCA services is vital to the community. The current pandemic has exposed critical issues that require more action from the Y than ever before.

Building on our long history of supporting communities, as well as responding to critical needs, the Y is committed to addressing food insecurity, health disparities, learning gaps, racial inequity, and more.

The Y is transforming to create a more inclusive, equitable and stronger community for all.
