At the YMCA, we’re for healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility. Our mission is to put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind, and body for all. Indiana YMCAs are in 90 diverse communities around the state, and serve 829,741 Hoosiers, both children and adults. The Indiana State Alliance of YMCAs advocates on behalf of these Ys.
Did you know we are the single largest provider of early childhood and school age programs in the state, and the nation? Indiana YMCAs also teach more kids how to swim than any other institution, which are lessons in safety, healthy living, and self-confidence. We provide chronic disease prevention and education programs, such as the YMCA Diabetes Prevention Program, currently reimbursed by United Healthcare, and LIVESTRONG®. The Indiana State Alliance of YMCAs, and individual Ys, also is part of the Indiana Statewide Pioneering Healthier Communities (Indiana SPHC) initiative. The Indiana SPHC mission is to help children and families choose a healthier path by improving physical activity and nutrition in communities and schools.
