Our Cause

The Y is made up of people from all backgrounds working together to strengthen their community.  

Together we work to ensure that everyone, regardless of ability, age, cultural background, disability, ethnicity, faith, gender, gender identity, ideology, immigrant status, income, race, sex or sexual orientation has the opportunity to reach their full potential. 

We share the core values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility -- they guide everything we do. 

The Y is committed to providing programs and services that are inclusive and welcoming to all. We value an environment that fosters dignity, respect, fairness and appreciation for all aspects and dimensions of diversity.

Our Purpose

Strengthen Communities

Our Wide Reach

The YMCA of Los Angeles has been making a positive impact in our communities for over 130 years. Our 26 branches stretch across over 100 miles of Los Angeles County, from Antelope Valley to San Pedro. Our membership community is 264,500 strong. Membership is open to all, with financial assistance available to those who cannot afford it. This year, the LA Y helped 1 out of 3 member families with financial assistance.

We cannot do our work alone, extending our work with over 200 community partners across the county, including schools, hospitals, clinics, cities and other civic organizations.
