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.

We are making great progress on the pool renovations. Tomorrow begins the installation of the fiberglass portion of the project. During this phase of the project which will be the next three days (Wednesday - Friday), we will experience very strong fumes and odors in the building. For the safety of everyone, we have made the decision to close the Y beginning tomorrow morning.

We will be open regular business hours all of today.

Our scheduled preventative maintenance shutdown will still begin this Friday evening at 8 pm. We will reopen with regular hours on Tuesday, September 8th. When we reopen, the majority of the pool project will be complete and the air quality will be safe for members to be in the building. We apologize for the inconvenience but want to keep everyone safe. The good news is once this project is complete, we will have a like new pool for everyone to enjoy!
