About Us

Our Impact is Felt Every Day

With a mission to following the example of Jesus Christ, by responding to community needs by serving all people especially youth, through relationships and activities that promote healthy spirit, mind and body our impact is felt when an individual makes a healthy choice, when a mentor inspires a child and when a community comes together for the common good.

Our Cause Defines Us

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That’s why, at the Y, strengthening community is our cause.  Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive.

Our History

Founded in 1857 by E. H. Sabin, the YMCA is a volunteer based organization that contributes to the lives of boys and girls, and men and women of all ages, races, religions, and economic backgrounds. We are a not-for-profit organization with the unique opportunity to touch the lives of infants through seniors throughout the community.

The YMCA of Southwestern Indiana is blessed to offer the community four YMCA Branches that are committed to building strong kids, strong families, and strong communities by providing programs based on five basic character values–Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Faith in Christ our Lord and Savior.

The Downtown, Dunigan, Outreach and Camp Carson Branches are part of a worldwide movement in more than 130 countries, with over 2500 Branches in the United States. If you would like to find out more about the YMCA movement or locate a YMCA you would like to visit please visit the YMCA of the USA.
