Mission and Vision

To put Christian principles into practice through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all.

VALUES AND THE YMCA NAME
Caring, Honesty, Respect, Responsibility and Faith remain the basis for all we do.
The Y is the YMCA. People most commonly refer to us as “the Y,” so that’s what we’re calling ourselves.
The “MCA” is not gone. “YMCA” is part of the new logo, introduced in 2010.
Our Y exists to serve all through inclusive services and programs.
In addition to mental and physical components, our Vision for Youth includes a spiritual component — the goal is to increase spiritual awareness in children and teens by encouraging volunteer service as an expression of love toward one another.

HISTORY OF THE YMCA MISSION
The Mission for the YMCA of Washington Commuity YMCA has remained consistent since its foundation in 1924.
