Your YMCA Story
Every day, the Altru Family YMCA makes a positive and lasting impact on thousands of youth and families in our community. We provide a safe, nurturing learning environment for children, so parents can go to work and/or complete an education. We prevent potential drowning or near drowning incidents, by teaching children swimming skills, as well as, how to be safe in and around the water. We offer support and assist individuals, who are managing a chronic disease, helping them to renew their strength and ability to impact their health through our wellness programs, such as our Diabetes Prevention Program, LIVESTRONG at the YMCA for cancer survivors, and our Parkinson’s Wellness Program. We enable children to experience nature, have fun and establish lasting friendships at camp. We help families reconnect, be active and improve upon their health, while creating memories together. We connect positive adult role models with young children in need of additional support and guidance from a mentor. We employ staff who are passionate about the opportunity to positively impact the health & well-being of others. For over 130 years, our Y has been providing programs and services that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.
