The YMCA of Greater Cincinnati inspires people of all ages, and families in all forms to achieve their hopes, dreams, and goals. For over 160 years, the YMCA has worked with our members and partners to strengthen Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky. We make a difference by focusing on three key areas: youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility. By investing in our kids, our health, and our community, the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to thrive.
