The YMCA of the USA is a mission-based, family-focused, organization with nearly 160 years of service in the U.S. The YMCA puts Christian principles into practice, welcomes and supports children and families and helps build the values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility through programs that build healthy spirits, minds, and bodies. The nation’s 2,617 YMCA’s serve more than 20.2 million people each year, uniting men, women, and children of all ages, faiths, backgrounds, abilities, and income levels. At the heart of community life across America, mission-driven YMCA’s are “a place to belong” and to live the values that guide and unite our members. “You’ve seen one YMCA…you’ve only seen one YMCA,” according to the YMCA of the USA.
We are focused on meeting the needs of our community. The Mat-Su YMCA conducted a survey asking our community what they needed, and based on those results, we offer after school programs, affordable swimming lessons, and teen programs.

BE PART OF SOMETHING BIGGER
Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs and services that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
We envision our nonprofit organization – in partnership with others – as an intergenerational community hub with programs, services, and resources available to all persons, regardless of status or ability to pay, that will enable them to improve their quality of life.
