This branch of the YMCA first opened in the 1950s and is commonly referred to as the "Penn Hills Y".

The YMCA Of Pittsburgh is a nationally affiliated character building social services agency focusing on program services for individuals and families. Christian in its heritage, it is ecumenical in its delivery of services and in its membership.

The Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) was founded on June 6, 1844 in London, England, by George Williams. Young men who came to London for work were often living in squalid and unsafe conditions and the YMCA was dedicated to replacing life on the streets with prayer and bible study. The YMCA idea, which began among evangelicals, was unusual because it crossed the rigid lines that separated all the different churches and social classes in England in those days. This openness was a trait that would lead eventually to including in YMCAs all men, women and children, regardless of race, religion or nationality.

This 6,500 square foot facility has been greatly enhanced with a 25,000 square foot state-of-the-art wellness center with expanded locker rooms, gymnasium, indoor walking track, playground, Child Watch and much more.
