Armed Services YMCA: Strengthening Our Military Family

The Armed Services YMCA is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit that serves active duty military members and their families.

In 2017, we registered more than 250,000 participants and delivered more than 1.3 million points of service to junior enlisted Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen and Coast Guardsmen and family members at 200 service centers in 18 states.

Whether providing respite child care for parents in need, summer camps for kids, or assisting with emergency needs, the Armed Services YMCA is a nonprofit with a mission: Strengthen Our Military Family.

We are not like your typical YMCA, we don't have paid memberships, we do not provide services to the local community.* Our focus is on the resiliency of military families. The challenges they face as they provide for the safety and security of our nation is immense. We owe it to them to help.

The programs, services, and events we provide are designed to help the family come together, stay together, and have the ability to adjust, bounce back, and thrive wherever the services sends them.

*We do serve the local community at our Wellness Center in Killeen, TX.
