The Y: We're for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility! The most important measure of the YMCA is the impact it has on the lives of the people and communities it serves. By growing and changing to meet the current needs of our community, we have been able to ensure that everyone finds a place of welcome and belonging at the Eugene Family YMCA. We are an organization that builds strong kids, strong families and strong communities. Through our staff, programs and childcare sites throughout the community, the YMCA positively impacts people of all ages, races, faiths and economic backgrounds.
