Family YMCA

The La Porte County Family YMCA strengthens the foundations of our community through well-being and fitness, camps, family time, swim, sports and play, and other activities for people of all ages, incomes and abilities. We’re more than just a place to work out. At the Y, we help build a healthy spirit, mind and body for all with the core values of caring, honesty, respect and responsibility at the heart of everything we do.

With a commitment to nurturing youth development, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility, the Y ensures that every individual has access to the essentials needed to learn, grow and thrive.


NEWS FROM THE Y

We ended up in first place for La Porte County NPO, third in the Large NPO division and fourth in the overall leader board. Taking third place in the Large NPO division means we were awarded a $1,000 cash prize for a total of $5,110 raised!

All proceeds will benefit our Scholarship Fund, which helps young people achieve their potential, empower people of all ages to lead healthier lives and strengthen the bond of our community.
