strengthening the foundations of community

Our South Bay Family YMCA makes strengthening our community our cause. By providing quality programs that encourage youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, we enable all people to be strong in spirit, mind and body. For 53 years, thousands of individuals, young and old, have turned to our South Bay Family YMCA for programs and services every year, because we’ve been that reliable, dependable, friendly non-profit that they know and trust. We count on the generosity of members, partners and donors like YOU to help them be more healthy, confident, connected and secure.


Our South Bay Family YMCA truly appreciates the support of our entire community. Membership and program fees at our YMCA do not cover all costs to support and grow the many sites, programs, and services offered to south bay residents and employees.

Through financial gifts and volunteerism provided by members, friends, business, and foundations, our South Bay Family YMCA is able to grow stronger and provide many vital programs and services within our community to youth, teens, families, individuals, and seniors. To build, strengthen and enrich everyone, the following opportunities are in place to ensure a brighter future.
