Changing Lives & Improving Health 

Investing in the Niles-Buchanan YMCA is investing in the future of our community. The Y focuses on youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. Our core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility are at the heart of everything we do. We believe that positive, lasting personal and social change can only happen when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health, and our communities.

As the nation's leading nonprofit committed to helping people and communities learn, grow, and thrive. Y contributions are both far-reaching and intimate — from influencing our nation's culture during times of profound social change to the individual support we provide to every person in our community.

The Niles-Buchanan YMCA has been serving this community since 1944. It was founded by leaders in the area to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to become healthier, more confident, connected, and secure. We serve youth, teens, adults, seniors, families, and the greater community with an emphasis on meaningful partnerships.

With this expansion, we will continue our mission with greater impact.
