Our Doors are Open to Everyone

The Altru Family YMCA is a non-profit community service organization serving Grand Forks, East Grand Forks and the surrounding communities. Our mission is to promote Christian principles through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. The YMCA Staff and Volunteer Leadership stand behind its mission and are committed to ensuring that everyone, regardless of age, income or background has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive, with no child, individual or family being turned away due to the lack of financial resources.
