For Healthy Living
For Social Development


The La Porte County Family YMCA is a leading nonprofit for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. We are a powerful association of men, woman and children of all ages and from all walks of life joined together by a shared passion: to strengthen the foundations of our community. 

With a commitment to nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. Our Y ensures that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow and thrive. To do our important work, our Y relies on support from members, donors, volunteers and community leaders. 

Our Y believes that lasting personal and social change can only come about when we all work together to invest in our kids, our health and our community. Every day our impact is felt when a mentor inspires a child, when an individual makes a healthy choice and when the community comes together for the common good. 

Our Y is, and always will be, dedicated to building healthy, confident, connected and secure children, adults, families and communities. There is no other nonprofit quite like the Y. Be a part of a cause committed to moving people and communities forward.

In an effort to keep everyone up-to-date with our new Michigan City Elston Branch sports, we have updated the flyer with the most recent information. We want to make sure that our program is successful and the best possible program for your child. We have extended the dates to allow as many participants as possible. If you were not able to go to Saturday's open practice you are still able to sign up your child for the program. You can contact our Michigan City Elston Branch Member Services Staff at 219-221-4055 or you can register online at www.lpymca.org. We will be placing children on teams at the beginning of next week. Thank you for supporting our cause. The Y. For a better us.
