Essential services available to support our community during this time.

Pop Up YKids

We are all facing significant disruption to our daily lives. For those with no other options for childcare, we are offering Pop Up Y Kids at several YMCA locations.


Food Pantries

Expanded food distribution for people struggling with food insecurity.


Family Resources

Safety-net programs including jobs, housing and mental support.


Virtual Health & Wellness

At home wellness resources including live virtual classes led by Y of SF instructors.


During these unsettling times, let’s be mindful of kindness. Counter stigma by learning and sharing facts. Viruses do not target specific racial or ethnic groups.

The safety and health of our members, staff and community remain our top priority. As concerns about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continue to rise, the YMCA of San Francisco is taking additional precautions within our facilities, programs and services. 

The YMCA Of San Francisco is committed to the safety and health of our members, staff, and community. With the growing concern about the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking precautions in our facilities, programs and services. As we continue to monitor the situation, we will keep you informed.

It is our mission to support youth, families, seniors and all members of our communities. Many of our members rely on the Y to provide healthy spaces and critical services to support their wellbeing.   

Please see below for changes to our regular services, information about our essential services and resources for all of our communities.  

Support Our Communities

We have launched the YSF COVID-19 Sustainability Fund to raise $3 Million in the next month to address our immediate crisis.

Support programs such as Pop Up YKids emergency childcare services, Food Pantries, Family Resource Centers safety-net services, and Virtual Wellness and Academic programs.

Temporary Suspension of Access to Fitness Facilities

In order to keep our communities safe and in compliance with the San Francisco Public Health Order, we are temporarily suspending access to all YMCA of San Francisco branch fitness facilities in San Francisco, Marin and San Mateo counties until further notice.

The Y is here to support your wellness as we navigate this new territory together. We are offering virtual healthy living resources, including live wellness classes led by our instructors, so you can maintain your focus on healthy living. Self-care is also more important than ever - exercise, sleep, nutrition and stress management are keys to staying healthy.  

Manage Your Membership

The Y has changed lives for the better over our 143-year history. We expect to continue to do so, regardless of the challenges. We need to come back and come back strong- financially, programmatically, and personally.

We ask for your ongoing investment in the Y during this unprecedented time. We respectfully request that you retain your membership during this brief period. Your support will allow us to continue to serve the community now and in the future.
