Our Cause Defines Us

We know that lasting personal and social change comes about when we all work together. That's why at the YMCAs of the Wabash Valley, 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 Strength is in Community

The Y is a nonprofit like no other. That's because in 10,000 neighborhoods across the nation, we have the presence and partnerships to not just promise, but deliver positive change. Throughout the Wabash Valley we serve over 430 children in our afterschool care program throughout Clay and Vigo counties. In 2017, we provided 24,328 meals to children in need through the Clay Youth Food Program.

Additionally, we provide a well-rounded, holistic health and wellness environment to over 7,000 members including fitness rooms, free-weight rooms, child watch for ages 6 weeks to 12 years, a pool in Vigo County, an indoor track and sauna in Clay County, over 30 classes and so much more..
