Using programs anchored in ideals such as character and leadership development, the YMCA provides a variety of programs that serve the needs of the community while enriching the lives of the individual. They build strong kids strong families and strong communities.
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.
