Welcome to the YMCA of Greater Seattle Press Room

Welcome to the YMCA of Greater Seattle. We’re an inclusive organization of men, women, and children with a shared commitment to nurture the potential of youth, promote healthy living, and foster social responsibility.

The Y is Seattle’s founding nonprofit organization, offering health, hope and opportunity. Here:

  • Parents find a safe, nurturing environment for their children to stay active, be engaged, and learn positive values
  • Children and teens play and develop self-confidence while feeling accepted and supported
  • Former foster kids and homeless young people receive assistance with housing, employment, life skills, and other resources to learn and work
  • Adults connect with friends, pursue interests, and learn how to live healthier
  • Families in crisis due to mental health, child abuse, neglect, or substance abuse receive support and resources from licensed counselors
  • People from all backgrounds and walks of life come together to volunteer and help strengthen their community
