Since 1853, the YMCA of San Francisco has been the premier place in Greater San Francisco for you and your family to come and be the very best that you can be.
Whether to maximize physical and mental health at any age; to provide social, physical, and educational development for our community’s children; or to receive a helping hand when it is needed most – the Y is here for you.
Despite the fact that the most challenging aspects of the pandemic are behind us, there is so much more that we can and must do together to strengthen and uphold our community.
All this critical work cannot be delivered without the robust community partnerships and generous donations of time and financial support provided by you – members of our Bay Area community.
At the YMCA of San Francisco, we are committed to ensuring a safe and welcoming environment where every individual can be their authentic self, belong to something greater, and find support to become the best version of themselves.
Our vision to build strong communities where you can be, belong, and become is at the root of everything we do.
Creating Opportunities for Youth
Together, we can ensure every young person develops the capabilities needed to become economically productive, cultivate sustainable livelihoods, contribute to a peaceful and democratic society, and maintain their individual wellbeing.
Building Equity with Our Communities
Together, we can ensure everyone has access to opportunities that combat social inequality, heal wounds caused by ideological polarization, and alleviate the effects of growing economic divides.
