ABOUT THE Y
The YMCA of Metropolitan Chattanooga has a 150 year history in the community. To date, the Y engages 60,000 individuals through programs and services across 18 locations, including one residential camp and three child development centers.
At the YMCA of Metropolitan Chattanooga, we believe in honoring our Christian mission, living our cause, acting in accordance with our values, and placing the greater good above self.
It is our belief that, in a diverse world, we are stronger when our doors are open to all. Diversity and inclusion are core tenets of our mission as we work to create better communities, a better country and a better world... For A Better Us. We are committed to ensuring that our members, program participants, donors, volunteers and team members feel genuinely welcome, encouraged and supported.
Together, with our members, donors & community partners, we are making sure that ALL have the opportunity to thrive. These programs would not be possible without our annual Community Support Campaign as well as private and public grants.
