For Youth Development
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.

Annual Campaign
You're the Difference. 
The Y has been working to strengthen our community for 107 years. We focus on three main priorities: youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Each day, La Porte County residents of all ages and from many different backgrounds come together to grow stronger and healthier in spirit, mind and body. 
Of course, we couldn't do all that we do without the help of our community. Our dedicated supporters coach basketball, direct racers at our 5K/10K and triathlon, paint walls and donate funds to ensure that important Y programs like swim lessons, youth and adult sports, summer camp and preschool remain accessible to everyone who needs them.
We have set our Annual Campaign fundraising goal for 2017 at $100,000, which in conjunction with our other fundraisers would allow us to provide around $200,000 in direct financial assistance. Please consider making a donation to help us change lives right here in La Porte County.
