Hampton Roads is home to the largest concentration of military in the U.S., with close to 200,000 active duty personnel from all five branches of the military. The Armed Services YMCA’s outreach is targeted towards junior enlisted military families, most with an income of less than $24,000 a year. These families endure unique stresses and hardships and have a particular set of needs. The Armed Services YMCA reaches out to these families with a variety of programs that prepare children for academic success, help spouses build personal support systems, make healthy lifestyle choices, and strengthen the overall families so they are resilient and ready to serve.

Consider joining us in our mission to “Make Military Life Easier” with a personal donation, a business partnership, or an event sponsorship. Together we can continue to strengthen our military community so they can do what they do best: serve and protect our nation.
