About Us

Founded in 1853, the Quincy Family YMCA has been a space for Caring, Honesty, Respect, and Responsibility.

For over 170 years, the Quincy Family YMCA has focused on empowering young individuals, promoting health and well-being and inspiring action in and across the community. Finding your Y is our cause. We know that a strong community can only be achieved when we invest in our youth, healthy living, and social responsibility. The YMCA brings individuals from all different backgrounds, perspectives, and generations to ensure that all have access to the opportunities, relationships, and recourses necessary to learn, grow, and thrive.

The Quincy Family YMCA is committed to being an organization that serves our entire community. We not only accept our differences but embrace them in all that we do; with our staff and volunteers, our members, our programs, and the diverse community we serve.

We believe that being diverse and inclusive makes us a stronger and more impactful organization as we strive to create an environment free of barriers, ensuring all we serve to feel welcome and have full access to all opportunities of the YMCA. This commitment is essential as we pursue our vision of youth development, healthy Living, and social responsibility.

When you become part of the Y you are finding a second family, a second home, and your Y. Today, we are transforming to better address issues like body positivity, inclusiveness, healthy habits, social isolation, learning gaps, and more.

We are committed to ensuring that our members, program participants, donors, volunteers and team members feel a sense of achievement, connection and belonging. As with everything we do, we are guided by our core values of youth development, healthy living and social responsibility- values that compel us to recognize the value of every person and to be an organization for all.
