As a charitable organization, The Wallingford Family YMCA has been helping to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities for over 73 years! Through our focus areas of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility, we change lives and reach out to neighbors in need.
Our programs and investment in our neighbors change lives! We turn no one away due to the inability to pay, To ensure the Y is for ALL, we depend on contributions to our "Community Support Campaign" to help make sure the Y's doors are open to all who need our programs & services, regardless of income or background.
Our initiatives positively impact all areas of our community AT NO CHARGE to the participants! "Fit-to-Go" helps fight childhood obesity & Upward Bound makes sure today's teens have a safe space to develop mentally, physically and socially. Our YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program helps reduce the risk of diabetes and prediabetes, while LiveSTRONG at the Wallingford YMCA helps cancer survivors regain physical strength and stamina as they develop close friendships with others.
The Y is so much more than a "gym & swim"; we are a movement for GOOD! Together with our members, donors, community & corporate partners, we are building a stronger, more healthy Wallingford. Our FREE community workshops, seminars and activities to bring families closer together, your gift helps us encourage health & wellness and build a greater sense of community.
