We Are Here for You

The YMCA of Van Wert County is a charitable, not-for-profit organization committed to helping people reach their full potential in mind, body, and spirit. We are here to serve people of all ages, backgrounds, abilities, and incomes. The YMCA's mission is community-based and believes that its programs and services should be available to everyone regardless of ones socio-economic background. 


Our financial assistance program is based on total household income and size of family or extenuating circumstances. The money used to fund this program is made possible by charitable donations made to the YMCA by friends and members. Caring members commit time to raising funds, specifically through our Annual Board Campaign, the United Way of Van Wert County and other events throughout the year that enable us to help each other.
