Each of the 13 Armed Services YMCA branches is deciding what is best based on its community’s needs and requirements and state and federal guidelines. You can also follow your branch on social media to get the latest.
The Armed Services YMCA is a registered 501(c)3 nonprofit that provides specialized programs and services to currently serving junior enlisted military service members and their families. Our tailored no and low cost programs and services include: child care, day and resident camps, child development programs, early learning classes, emergent food support, deployment support, emergency travel support and health and wellness services. We are the nation’s oldest military service organization, and have served the military community since we were established nearly 160 years ago during the Civil War.
Unlike your neighborhood Y, we don't have paid memberships, and we don’t normally provide services to the local community*. Our focus is on the resiliency of military families. In 2019, we engaged more than 250,000 participants and delivered more than 1.3 million points of service to junior enlisted Soldiers, Marines, Sailors, Airmen, Coast Guardsmen and family members at 200 service centers in 18 states.
*We do serve the local community at our Wellness Center in Killeen, TX.
