Our Community Impact

The Lancaster Family YMCA has been serving Lancaster County for 165 years. Through our focus areas of YOUTH DEVELOPMENT, HEALTHY LIVING and SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY, we support children, adults and families with programs that protect, teach, connect, heal, nourish and encourage.

We deliver our programs and services through branches in Lancaster City, Lampeter-Strasburg and New Holland, and our Early Learning Academy and YMCA Camp Shand. By partnering with local schools and other nonprofit organizations to offer services off-site, we are able to broaden our reach in impacting more lives.
