Our Mission, Guiding Principles and Mission Focus

Mission.  The Armed Services YMCA enhances the lives of military members and their families in spirit, mind and body through programs relevant to the unique challenges of military life.

Guiding Principles. The Armed Services YMCA will:

  1. Be guided by Christian principles with a holistic approach to develop and promote healthy spirit, mind and body;
  2. Be inclusive and treat everyone with compassion and respect;
  3. Collaborate with military commands and community organizations;
  4. Honor the service members’ and their families’ commitment to defend our Nation; and
  5. Strive for excellence in all we do.

Mission Focus.  Priority shall be given to providing needed programs and services for junior enlisted personnel, both single and married, and their family members.  The focus of work shall be in three areas - youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Services may be provided to military personnel other than junior enlisted where resources are available. Programs and services shall be designed to complement and supplement those provided by the Armed Forces, either on or off military installations as appropriate.

Who We Are

The Armed Services YMCA strengthens our military family by providing programs and services to the young men and women of all five armed services: Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, and Coast Guard.

We support military families through programs focused in three areas: Youth Development, Healthy Living and Social Responsibility.

Last year, 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.

We have served since the Civil War. Our banners have been seen in every conflict since. On the battlefields of Europe and in far flung reaches of China, we were there taking care of the military fighting for our freedoms.

We can't continue without your support. You can provide comfort for a military child, or help with childcare for a military mother. Your donation will be put to efficient use. Thank you for your support.
