THE Y. FOR A BETTER US.
Everyone knows the Y as a place to swim, or exercise, but we’re so much more. The YMCA of Central Kentucky has served Lexington and the surrounding areas since 1853. A 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, we’re working side-by-side with our neighbors to address critical community needs that help kids develop into smart, resilient adults, for people to improve their health and build a sense of community, and for our most vulnerable young people to get the care and support they need.
Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all. With that and our cause of strengthening community, we're here to make Central Kentucky a better place to live.
Today, the YMCA of Central Kentucky operates six YMCA facilities in Lexington and Frankfort, as well as, programs in Franklin, Jessamine and Scott Counties.
