The YMCA of San Francisco builds strong kids, strong families and strong communities by enriching the lives of all people in spirit, mind and body.
For more than 150 years, the YMCA of San Francisco has provided comprehensive programs and services to meet the diverse needs of the Bay Area. Through its 14 branches from Marin County to the Santa Cruz Mountains, YMCA programs span the generations to address compelling wellness and social needs in our communities.
From vital experiences in the natural environment to truancy mitigation programs, the YMCA provides the resources that each neighborhood needs in a local community center. In order to carry out this mission, we rely on philanthropic contributions from organizations and individuals who share our concern for the communities of the Bay Area as we continue to preserve and expand our key programs through broadening our base of philanthropic support.
The YMCA stands for Youth Development, for Healthy Living, and for Social Responsibility.
